You might need to use tools that require adult supervision, such as glue gun and scissors. If so, these can be replaced by textile glue and safety scissors. Make sure you ask your parents some help.
Want to enjoy birdsong without having to lock a bird up in a cage? We have the solution.
Here is how to make your very own backyard bird feeder:
1-Start by drawing a 1/2-inch asterisk on the side of a clean 1-liter soda bottle, about 4 inches from the bottom.
2-Rotate the bottle 90 degrees and draw another asterisk 2 inches from the bottom. Draw a 1-inch-wide circle opposite each asterisk.
3- Ask your parents to use a craft knife to slit the asterisk lines and cut out the circles. Insert a wooden spoon handle first through each hole and then through the opposite asterisk, – see the picture.
4 – Remove the bottle cap and twist a small eye screw into the top of it for hanging.
And that’s that! Now all you have left to do is hang your feeder from a tree and wait for it to call the birdies in your area. They will especially appreciate your creation come winter!
