Why Make a Bird Feeder?

This quick project is a fun way to spend time together as a family and teach your kids to appreciate wildlife right in your own backyard.

As the weather changes, some bird species migrate away, others visit your area while migrating through and still others stay close to home to stick out the winter months. With this project, you can help feed local and traveling birds any time of year.

My kids love being able to look out the window, even days after we hung our bird feeders, and watch the birds eating. It gives them a sense of satisfaction and fosters stewardship to see that they can help the creatures find something to eat when the snow on the ground would otherwise make that difficult.

And it’s always fun to get your hands dirty!
