Outdoor and Garden Projects
For the outdoorsy characters, birdhouses are a great way to get the whole family involved in a project. Get the kids out and about in the garden, finding twigs, grass or stones to decorate a new house for their flying friends! Recycle your plastic bottles, cans or even teacups to construct a cosy home. Bonus points to the kids for painting or bedazzling them!
If you are an expert DIY family, then level up and construct a beautiful wooden house for your chirpy companions. Organise an afternoon tea outdoors where the kids can learn about what birds eat: seeds, dried fruit and nuts; which are healthy for humans too!
Put out some mason jars with tealights in them around the garden, on outdoor tables or even hang them from a tree using old wire or clothes hangers! You could also craft some dresses or hats from felt, paper or any other materials lying around and hang them in the garden, to create your own outdoor clothes shop!
