My kids and I decided to build their very first bird house. It was quite the challenge keeping them engaged, but we managed to get through it. We started by cutting some wood at random lengths. I didn’t want to get too complicated. They are 4 and 2. After getting an idea of what we wanted the bird house to look like, it went together like a puzzle. I think the boys had the most fun spreading the glue and painting. Go figure, the two messiest parts of the project. When we finished building it we wanted to hang it right away before painting, so we hung it on a tree in the back yard. Later, we painted the bird house and hung on the fence behind the shop. The boys did a great job and the birdhouse looks awesome! You can watch the video of the build HERE.
