Gardening With Children: Build a Bird Feeder


We know a lot of children these days are addicted to Technology, be it computer games, iPads, phones you name it. It can be a challenge getting them involved in the garden. However, you might be surprised how much children, once you get them involved, do take an interest in wildlife and growing something themselves.

We have therefore decided to run a feature of certain things and activities you can do with your children or grandchildren. How are we going to do it?

We thought some nice and easy to understand infographics would do the trick, so this week we look at how to build a bird feeder for your garden.

The nights are getting longer, the temperature is dropping and whilst a lot of birds are starting to migrate, we need to look after the ones that stay behind and brave the autumn and winter months.

So here we go, here’s a fun way to get your little ones involved:

Also check out the RSPB bird identifier to find out which birds are visiting your garden. Have fun and if you need some seeds then visit our good friends at Garden Wildlife Direct you do some great packages delivered straight to your door!
