This project is “for the birds!”

Step 1. Wash out a juice or milk carton. Let it dry.

Step 2. Use marker to draw the shape of the space you want to cut out on the large sides of the carton. (Fig 1)

Step 3. Depending on your age (or cutting skills – lol!), you may need help from an adult for this cutting step. Use a utility knife or scissors to cut the sides you marked out on the carton. (Fig 2)

Step 4. Paint the outside of the carton. You may need to paint a base coat first, depending on your paint coverage, and then add the final decorative colors.  Make your feeder as fancy or funny as you like. (Idea: Use a chop stick or a popsicle stick to make a perch.)

Step 5. Poke a hole in the top on each side of the carton with a screwdriver or nail. Thread yarn or string through the holes and knot at the top so you can hang.

Now find the perfect spot bird watching spot to hang your feeder and fill it with birdseed!
