During the end of summer months, it’s great to get outdoors for some fun activities before the weather gets a little bit chillier. With the kids heading back to school this great activity is a brilliant way to get them outside and also have them learn a thing or two. Building a bottle bird feeder is a great way to get the family together and encourages children to get outside.

Building a bird feeder is simple as it only requires using items that are found around the house. All you need to do is find some reusable plastic bottles, a wire and pencils and you’re ready to get crafting.

While older children can help build the feeder, you can also get younger children involved by having them decorate the bird feeder. This allows them to get creative and helps them feel like they contributed to getting birds in the garden. It’s also a great opportunity to teach them about wildlife as they admire the different birds that fly to the feeder.
You can easily welcome birds in your garden by following a few quick and easy steps. Check out Sainsbury’s Bank’s guide below for how to make a home-made bottle bird feeder.
