Making a Bird Feeder


  • One orange juice or milk carton  ½ gallon size—washed and cleaned out
  • Sand Paper –one piece ( to ‘rough up’ the exterior of the carton before painting—so it will hold the paint)
  • One pipe cleaner
  • One straight wooden stick 8 to 10 inches long (from outside fallen tree limb or a wooden dowel)
  • Waterproof acrylic paint –one small jar, preferable green or blue (craft stores)
  • One “sponge” brush p to paint the carton
  • Lots of materials from outside –fallen leaves (press them between sheets of newspaper), grasses,  fall weeds, acorns, evergreen branch pieces (small) ferns ( pressed)
  • Elmers school glue
  •  Some bird seed to put in your feeder
  •  Have Mom or Dad cut the holes in the Milk carton –as per the demonstration before starting
