This week has been so much fun. We spent some time marking things off our Summer Bucket List and one of those was making bird houses. I found these super cute DIY bird houses at Oriental Trading Company and they made this project fun and easy. I knew the kids wouldn’t be able to actually build a bird house so these were easy to assemble and made the entire process so easy.
This was a great way to spend a really hot summer day. It was way to hot outside this week to do very much outdoors in the afternoon. So we stayed inside and made some really cute bird houses instead. I just gathered up what I had around the house to decorate them. I put out some paint and glass beads. The kids had a lot of fun with them and got so creative.
The DIY bird houses came with three different kinds of bird houses. Each one came with these fit together pieces though that you just fit into place like a puzzle. They hold really well though. I was surprised at how easy they were. So we just painted the pieces and let them dry then put them together.
The girls really had fun coming up with their designs. I love finding projects that allow them to express their creativity and artistic abilities. They have so many great ideas.
Once we put them together we attached the included twine so we could hang them up. They turned out so cute. It was really fun and now my garden has some really pretty bird houses to decorate it.
