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.

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.
