In just a couple of weeks the kids will be out of school for summer break and there will be lots of hours to spend with them. Now is the time to plan out afternoon projects and day trips to keep them engaged, entertained, and as far away from the TV as possible.
Coincidentally, the warmer months are the perfect time to encourage little birds to stop by, so we think a great way to put it all together would be building a birdhouse with your young ones.
The Classic Birdhouse by Tweet Tweet Home is a great option. It is a Do-It-Yourself item that will keep your kid busy for an afternoon, with the added benefit that it is 100% recyclable and recycled Polypropylene plastic, which opens the door for an interesting and educational “green” conversation.
The birdhouse is available in two styles – one is a black and white combination of polka dots and diagonal lines, and another one comes with the silhouette of a tree branch painted on the front. Both are shipped with a perch and a loop, to give you options as to where to place it. The possibility of rain does not have to be a deterrent as the materials are stain, mold, and mildew resistant.
This birdhouse is really easy to put together, mostly a few snaps here and there, but its delight is ongoing. Your child will love getting it ready for a winged visitor and will love it time and again as little birds stop by to enjoy its shelter.
