PLAYful Idea

There are many ways you can make a bird feeder using materials at home! What can you find around the house? If you have a PLAYcation Kit and have any leftover pipe cleaners in it, the kids could string cheerios and hang them outside. Pinecones smeared with nut butter and rolled in birdseed make a nice birdfeeder, too.

What Kids Learn

Making the birdfeeder creates opportunities for creativity, manipulation with fine motor skills and a chance to talk about wildlife. After, consider keeping a log of the types of animals and birds who visit your feeder.
