How to make a recycled bird feeder.

Hey readers,

Did you know this month is bird feeding month? What better way to celebrate than making a recycled bird feeder. Not only is it helping the environment but green too. 

What you will need. 

 Plastic bottle with lid. 
Twine or string. 
Birdseed (which you can get from your local animal store) 

How to make the bird feeder. 

1. Make sure that the bottle is washed and cleaned before using and also make sure you have the lid for the bottle. 

2. Cut a hole in the side of the bottle big enough so that the seeds can flow freely but also making sure it is not too big that the seeds will fall out. 

3. Then near the bottom of the bottle make a hole that goes through the other side. Put one pencil in and then do the same again but above the first pencil so then will make a perch for the birds to sit on whilst getting the food. 

4. Measure the twine or string, you need enough to hold the feeder. 

5. Put a two holes at the top and thread through twine or string through them. 

6. Then fill your feeder with bird seeds. I would recommend using a funnel if you have one, makes it less messy to pour into the food into the bottle.  

7. Finally, find somewhere suitable for you in your garden to tie the feeder and there you have your very own bird feeder.

Be careful to not do this activity if you are allergic to nuts. Be careful with the scissors and ask an adult to help.
