Popsicle Stick Bird Feeder

This is an activity with relatively easy instruction and safe materials depending on your choice of glue. (Using child-safe glue is a safe bet.) You can purchase bird feed or make your own at home as another activity.  This activity can also initiate conversations about birds or you can take a walk and look for birds.

Instructions:

There are great instructions at the Creative Cubby website or follow the instructions below.

  • Gather 12 Popsicle sticks and line them up side by side.  Glue two sticks across the row and then flip it over doing the same to the other side.
  • Make a second row of Popsicle sticks going in the opposite direction to reinforce the base.
  • Glue down a tongue depressor.
  • Continue by alternating Popsicle sticks around the outside until you have 6 rows, gluing each stick down as you go.
  • Let dry.
  • Paint the bird feeder.
  • Using a hot glue gun attach a chord to the underside of the bird feeder.
  • Thread the cord underneath the top round of Popsicle sticks and glue again using the glue gun.
  • Fill the bird feeder with bird feed.
