This bird nesting material activity is a great way for kids to help provide for the birds!
Unfortunately I got a little late in posting this but some birds make more than one nest so I thought it was still worth sharing – or you could just make a note of it for next spring!
As well as commercially bought bird feeders we have enjoyed making two other types of bird feeder – one using a cardboard tube and one from bacon fat. But we can provide more for our birds than just food and water – nesting material!
Nesting materials can be all kinds of things from around the house:
- Shredded paper
- Cotton balls
- Twigs and sticks
- Yarn and thread
- Human hair or pet hair
It was a lovely feeling knowing that our contributions might help to keep some baby birds warm over the next few weeks!
