With the kids home from school for the foreseeable future and the pressure on to keep them busy, I’ve been on the lookout for fun activities that we can do together. Watching the birds in the backyard has always been enjoyable in the mornings so when I saw this DIY bird feeder kit on amazon I knew it would be the perfect little project for me and kids. Next up perhaps we’ll try a birdhouse! The kit we picked came with everything you need to build the feeder (minus the hammer and any paints) and was relatively simple in its design.
