Bird Feeders | A Toddler Craft.



This week we're staying close to home. I've started the glamours task of potty training Oliver so our trips out of the house are short and sweet. So far, things are going great. I've done this four times already so I think I figured out what works and what doesn't. In case you're wondering, bribery definitely works. To pass the time Audrey and Oliver have been having fun with craft projects. These bird feeders were a big hit.


You might remember I first made them with my little craft campers but you can find my full tutorial over at the lovely blog Hellobee. It's the perfect project to do while discussing things like shapes, birds and seasons. The above photo was obviously their favorite part of the activity.

  4. What a fun idea. I may have to do this with my daughters Kinder playgroup. I love the little hands as well. My son's little 2 year old hands are thinning and loosing that pudge to them it makes me want to photgraph their hands. Thanks for always posting beautiful and practical ideas! I love your blog.I just don't think I've commented before.

  5. Good luck with potty training! Maya protests with wailing and gnashing of teeth. No bribes in the universe are working on her yet—from small lollipops to large promises of castles and ponies. Ha! I gave her an ultimatum. 3 years = end of my rope.

    Cute bird feeders!

  10. My boy made one during a scout activity & hung it on our front tree. It was fun to see the little birds gobble up all the delicious seeds.

  13. This is such a cute idea.... I'm thinking of making these as favors for a baby shower. How many cut-outs were you able to make with the mixture?
