This is a simple craft that can make kids feel proud when they see birds flocking together to feed themselves.
This bird feeder craft can teach kids how a little bit of kindness will help other beings on earth survive and thrive as well.
Also, hanging bird feeders in your backyard will help kids to develop the habit of birdwatching and learn about different types of birds in your neighbourhood.

Therefore, this craft will help kids to understand more about the lives of other creatures and develop a caring heart to them.

How to make a bird feeder with household items (step-by-step tutorial)
Get all the materials ready.
Now, take the paper cup and scissors. Cut the top portion of the cup out, including the rim.
Paint the cup using colours of your choice. Here we used watercolour for painting.
Let the paint dry completely.
Now, make two holes on the opposite sides of the cup as shown in the pics above.
Next, we are going to insert a cotton twine (or use any thread you have) through the holes so that we can hang the bird feeder. So, take a twine of appropriate length and insert both ends of the twine into each hole, securing the ends tightly to each hole.
Draw any patterns or designs you like on the birdfeeder and make it pretty.
And that’s it. The paper cup bird feeder is ready to be hung on your backyard tree.
