With summer here I want to do some "MaKe It MoNdAy" projects that the kids can do!

Lil chick and I made this fun and thrifty bird feeder yesterday out of a 2-liter coke bottle.

Get an empty 2-liter and rinse it out. Cut off label. Cut a hole below the label line big enough for a bird to get into. Then slice a small hole beneath that for your twig for the bird to use as a perch. Hot glue the twig so it stays in place.

Paint the outside of the bottle any color you have. Lil chick picked out green regular old craft paint. We gave it 2 coats. Then we polka dotted it since we love polka dots in bright colors. 

I had a wooden flower that I painted yellow and wrote with a sharpie "for the birds" and attached it with hot glue. 

We hung our bird feeder with ribbon from our mimosa tree in out front yard. Now we just have to get some birdseed!

This is a fun a quick craft project for the kids. It took about 45 minutes from start to finish. And if you have a grandma or grandpa this would make a cute little summer gift for them.

Helpful Hint: Pour bird seed in through the bird hole.

I found a lot of fun and easy projects on Fave Crafts!

If you have a great idea for a "MaKe It MoNdAy KiDs" email me @ or leave a comment. And if you make this project take a pic and email it I would love to see it!
