Now that it’s warming up outside and the flowers are blooming I want to spend all my free time in my garden with my rabbit, Beatrice and my nieces when they’re visiting. We’re new to this house and garden so I’m always thinking of ways to make it our own. My niece likes hearing the birds chirping and she suggested we make some houses for the birds so they could stay and visit too. Bird houses and feeders are definitely what’s missing in our backyard. Here are some of the best ideas we found for making bird houses and feeders with kids!
Painted or Decoupaged Milk Cartons make such cool upcycled bird houses. Younger children can use paint and embellishments, older kids might prefer trying decoupage.
