Get Creative – Bird Feeder

Tuesday 9th August 2016

Transform old eggs boxes into bird feeders for the children to take home and place in their garden.


  • Egg cartons
  • Scissors
  • Sharp pencil
  • String
  • Paints or Colourings pens (to decorate)
  • Glue
  • Bird Seed


1. Cut off the top of the egg carton and punch a hole in the four corners using a sharp pencil.

2. Cut two pieces of string about 30cm long.

3. Thread the string through holes diagonally and tie ends into knots over corners.

4. Decorate the bird feeder using paints or colouring pens, or stick some twigs, leaves etc to make it look more natural.

5. When the children take their bird feeder home, they should hang it up in their garden in a sheltered location.

6. Encourage the children to keep an eye out for the birds feeding from it, they could perhaps keep a diary or take a photo and share with the rest of the group next week.
