Let’s Make a Birdhouse

Attention parents (or fellow crafters)!

Need something to do with your kids this weekend? Look no further! Sophie and her good friend, Elliott, recently made birdhouses together.

The first step (other than being goofy), was covering a half-gallon milk container with brown construction paper. (We used Trader Joe’s bags.) This is where the moms got involved.

Then it was on to decorating the houses. Sophie and Elliott decorated with stickers and pens.

Before finishing up, we added a string (or use ribbon) to the top to hang the house. And stick a few popcycle sticks from the container for the birds to perch on.

Here are Sophie and Elliott admiring their finished products. They take their crafting very seriously.

Hanging the houses.

Elliott opted for a larger tree.

Birdhouses so cute together — just like Sophie and Elliott.

When we got home, Sophie wanted to hang the birdhouse in her tree. She couldn’t quite reach.

Sophie keeps looking outside for birds. She doesn’t understanding why they’re not flocking to her house. I told her we’ll have to put some peanut butter on the stick. Or cream cheese, she said. Apparently birds prefer cream cheese.
