It's Make it Monday | Let's Make a Recycled Bird Feeder

Creation Station | Arts and Craft Activities for Kids | Seasonal Activities for Kids | Indoor Activities For Kids | Rainy Day Activities For Kids | Recycled craft

Isn't it great to recycle old items to make something new?  Juice cartons can often not be recycled because of the internal coating, so we have found a fun way of reusing them and feeding the birds too!

To Make the Feeder you will need:

- Washed out juice carton

- Craft knife or scissors

- Acrylic paint

- Any decoartions (weatherproof)

- Small twig

- Bird feed

To Make It:

1) Carefully cut a hole near the bottom of the carton. It needs to be big enought to be able to put food in and that small birds can enter.

2) Paint all over. You will need 2 coats of paint.

3) Add any other decorations/colours.

4) Insert your small twig just below the hole so the birds have somewhere to land.

5) Put in some bird food and hang or place up in a tree.

Really easy to book and great price

Really easy to book and great price! My daughter (7 months) attended her first discovery session, after we've been to a tiny treasure session and a drop in session, she absolutely loved it, as did I. I would definitely recommend going to creation station sessions and Joanna is fab too.

Party for 9 year old

Birthday party with a group of 8/9 year old girls. All had a great time and took home some some amazing artwork (initial canvasses). Slime making inevitably a winner all round. Stress free for parents! Sarah fantastic with the girls. Would highly recommend.
