Bird Feeder Construction

A few weeks ago I found a couple of Prefabricated Bird Feeder kits at our local Home Hardware store in Burns Lake. Perfect hands-on school project to involve Dad. It took awhile to find the time to do the project but it finally happened.

Here are the steps I caught with the camera…

Place pieces and draw a line along the inside edge so you know where to place the nails.

Ready to find a place to put it and add some feed.

TAaaaDA!!

We haven’t put them outside yet. The girls haven’t decided where they want to put them. We were thinking on some posts in the garden area to help with bug maintenance or in the yard near the windows so we can watch what birds come to feed even on rainy days.

I will be sure to add an update photo when they have finally decided on the placement.
