The girls and I decided that with spring coming so fast in WI the birds would need to be making new nests to hold their eggs and might need some help. And we want to make sure that they have plenty of places for good homes. So we are helping them out by making a few bird houses for them!
We started out with an orange juice jug and a quaker oats container.
After they were thoroughly covered in paint and dried we decorated them with stickers!
Once they were all dried we pushed a wood cooking squirer through the bird houses and then filled the bottom of the houses with grasses and other soft natural materials for the birds to use.
Then Sam picked out where she wanted to hang her house!
Avery was not ready to hang her's up yet so it still sits on my kitchen counter. I will wait a few more days to let her decide where she wants to hang it.
But now we wait to see if the birds will find the house and use it to lay some eggs.
How are you getting ready for spring? Are you helping the animals in your yard get ready for spring?
