    Fun Birding Activities for Kids

    Pinecone smeared with peanut butter and rolled with bird seed makes a fun bird feeder activity.

    Children have a natural curiosity about the world around them and this extends to bird-watching in their back yard. Enhance their interactions with birds by teaching kids about the different bird species that visit your area. These activities will help:

     

    Hang a bird feeder

    Simply hang a feeder where it can easily be viewed from the house. Let the children fill the feeder with birdseed themselves. Have a field guide ready to help kids identify their feathered visitors.

     

    Build a bird feeder

    Birds will feed from a variety of feeders; choose the style that your kids will enjoy making. Consider these ideas:

    • Smear a pinecone with peanut butter and roll it in birdseed. Tie a string to the top and hang where you can see it from a window.
    • Create a tray feeder using an aluminum pie tin and string. Use a hole punch to create four equally spaced holes on the rim and tie a 2-foot piece of string to each hole. Then tie the strings together at the top and hang the feeder outside.
    • Cut out a hole on the side of a plastic milk jug, fill with birdseed, and hang from a tree.
    • Create a simple birding journal

    Teach your children about different bird species by visiting the library. Have them look up information about the state birds from the states they have visited. Create a birding journal using a blank notebook. They should draw the different birds they’ve seen and list where they saw them.
