Bird Feeder

 Bird feeder

Make your own bird feeder.

30 minutes This should take about 30 mins

You will need:

  • Margarine tub
  • Different coloured paper or paint
  • Glue
  • Hole punch
  • Wool

Remember to ask a Grown-up for help.

What to do:

Step 1

Decorated margarine tub

Start with the empty margarine tub. Decorate it by sticking on pieces of brightly coloured paper, or paint it with different colored paints. Then wait for it to dry.

Step 2

Holes in margarine tub

Ask an adult to help you with this next part. Use a hole punch to put four holes in the top of the margarine tub, so you have two holes facing each other.

Step 3

Wool through the holes

Thread some wool through each of the holes, and tie the two ends together. Make sure the wool is long enough to hang from somewhere.

Step 4

Bird feeder

Finally, fill your birder feeder with bird food, find a place for it to hang, and wait for the birds to arrive!
