Homemade Bird Feeder Craft for Preschoolers
Kids will love this fun cheerio bird feeder and it makes for an amazingly simple quick activity! This easy preschool craft is a great way for kids to connect with nature and is a fun way to strengthen those fine motor skills!
This simple bird feeder craft is a lot of fun for kids and the perfect year-round activity – especially in winter when there is snow on the ground! I’ve done this craft several times with my girls and I’ve even done this as an activity for Children’s Ministry. I have to say, that older kids enjoy making this homemade bird feeder, too!
