January Challenge set by Laney Mead for Craft Pimp peeps is to create bird feeders using "stuff" from around the house. A quick google search later and I found lots of examples of sweet simple milk bottle feeders which looked an excellent starter project to do with my little ones. I asked the kids to doodle some shapes for the openings on each side of the bottles and helped them cut them out.
Time will tell how much of the wild bird seed will stay in when the wind blows! I hope these turn out to be popular with the local wildlife (which includes a flock of green parakeets) so that my little ones can enjoy watching the birds come by for a snack.
The kids loved making these and the next plan is to make some kind of bird cookies or fat balls :-D
