Milk, It Does a Bird Good
Last week I was in Lakeshore Learning, a teacher supply educational store. A craft kit bird feeder caught my three-year-old’s eye. She was near melt-down-fever-pitch wanting this kit for $16.95. I was actually considering it, until I realized there was no crafting involved.
It was a wooden pre-made bird feeder for kids to paint. The only reason she left it behind was my promise to make our own bird feeder at home. With a quick search online, this super easy bird feeder craft came up..A LOT!
Home is What You Make of It
If you’re going for the barebones of a bird feeder, as we were, all you need is:
- Gallon Milk Jug
- 2 Twigs (or more for decorating)
- Rocks, pinecones (optional for decorating)
- Hanger or Wire
