Recycled milk carton birdhouses and bird feeders are a fun quick and easy kids craft that anyone can make! Perfect for kids of all ages!
Supplies Needed to Make Milk Carton Birdhouses:
- Clean and Dry Recycled Milk or Juice Carton
- White Paint
- Sheet of Chipboard or Recycled Cardboard
- School Glue
- Foam Paintbrush
- Tissue Paper Squares in Assorted Colors
- Wooden Spoon
- X-Acto Knife (if needed, parental use only)
- Mod Podge or Spray Sealer (optional)
On your roof piece, cut two small slits about 2″ apart, and thread through the ends of your twine. Tie a knot securely on the underneath side so it won’t show. Using the school glue (or hot glue if you don’t want to wait for school glue to dry!), attach the roof to your carton.
Give the milk carton birdhouses a couple of coats of outdoor Mod Podge or spray varnish, and hang them up outside.
If you made a bird feeder, fill the bottom up with bird seed, hang from a tree, and wait for your feathered friends to discover it!
These DIY milk carton bird feeders are such a fun and easy kids craft, and you can adapt this project to incorporate many different craft materials – it’s a great way to use up excess supplies that you already have on-hand!
