Make a Milk Carton Bird House
Almost every child is captivated by the wonders of nature and all of its creatures. Whether it be butterflies in the summer or animals at the zoo, kids are generally drawn to wildlife. Think about how excited your child will be to watch birds flock to his very own homemade bird feeder. By employing some imagination and recycling a milk carton, you can help your child create a bird's paradise and together you can both take part in watching the birds make use of your creation.
This project will not only demonstrate to your child the importance of recycling and how to contribute to a better environment, but will also improve his fine motor skills.
What You Need:
- Half gallon milk carton, washed and dried
