Make Your Own Bird House

Friday was our activity day & we made a birdhouse to go along with our Science study of animals. This is super easy!

Step One: Take a half gallon plastic bottle.

Step Two: Cut an entrance hole in it with a knife. Cut about half way up the side.

Step Three: Paint the outside a dark brown or dark green. We painted two sides green & two sides brown. Camouflage!

Step Four: Hang the birdhouse in a tree. My husband had some wire with "S" hooks from an old bird feeder that we used.
The jug is light & does blow around in the wind so I suggest putting some gravel or sand in the bottom to make it more stable.
If you want a more custom look you can always glue wood sticks or bark to the outside. Have fun!
