Snow Day Birdhouse Project with My Boy

Its snowing to beat the band here and we won’t be going out to play in it until after nap time so I needed to come up with entertainment this morning…Decided to make a birdhouse using stuff we  had around the house. Let the mess begin!

bird feeder supplies

To make this we used:

    Old container for the feeder

    Empty carton of eggs for the paint

    Skewers for the birds to stand on

    Scizzers

    Paint

    Brushes

   Container for brush rinsing water

I recomend using a weather resistant paint but I am still finding little splats of paint from a project we did at Christmas so we are sticking to washable. We hung our feeder in a sheltered location to get longer life out of it.

Yes, in our house we always do art projects in our underwear! We've been known to cook in our undies also!

I'm sure my boy will be a famous artist when he grows up!

Instructions:

Wash and dry the container.

Cut out holes in all four sides.

Pour paint into egg container slots for easy no mess clean up (seriosuly the best use of egg containers ever).

Hand the kid a brush and stand back!

When the paint has dried pierce the birdhouse under each hole and slide the skewers through.

Fill with seed.
