Craft: Nesting Supply Box For Birds

Spring is nest building time for birds that have returned from the south. This craft is easy to put together and a lot of fun to do. It's a great activity for children of all ages and because this craft repurposes a used milk container it makes a great Earth Day activity too!

What you need:

Milk carton
String
Scissors
Dryer lint
Pet and people hair
Bits of yarn and string

What you do:

1. Ask a grownup to cut a flap (about halfway down) in both sides of the milk carton.
 
2. Wash the inside of the milk carton and allow it dry.
 
3. Fold the flaps of the milk carton down to create a perch for the birds to land on.
 
4. To make the hanger: thread a long piece of string through the opening of the milk carton. Tie the two pieces of string together. Make sure you use strong knots or ask a grownup to help you.
 
5. Fill the box with the items you have collected (dryer lint, pet and people hair, bits of string and yarn).
 
6. Hang your nesting supply box outside in a tree and keep checking to see if it needs replenishing.
