Making A Bird Feeder Today we’re going to make a bird feeder by reusing household items and some natural materials! #iwill 4 nature #edencommunities
Why make a bird feeder? Keeping wildlife fed will help them stay healthy and flourish. Putting out food, particularly over the winter, can be a real help.
Here’s what you’ll need! 1 empty milk carton scissors 2 twigs 1 shoe lace 1 pen sunflower seeds/ birdseeds
Here’s how to make it! Step 1 Using your scissors cut out 4 rectangles on your milk carton - one on each side. Ask an adult to help you with this
Step 2 Pierce 4 holes near the base of the carton using your pen- one on each side.
Step 3 Insert the twigs through the holes on either side to make a perch.
Step 4 Add the seeds into the carton. We recommend using sunflower seeds or birdseed. * Please check the seeds you are using are safe for the birds to eat as some can be poisonous.
Step 5 Tie the shoelace around the lid of the milk carton, hang it on a tree and wait for the birds to descend!
RSPB Birdwatch Initiative If you spot a bird, why not take part in the RSPB’s (Royal Society Protection Birds) birdwatch initiative? All you have to do is tweet a photo of any birds you see using the hashtag #Breakfast. Birdwatch.
