My children and I have been studying Ornithology this year in homeschool. As well as studying it, I want the kids to grow to love birding and appreciating what beautiful creatures God has created. So we have been, for the past year or so, setting up a backyard bird habitat.
A happy place that birds will enjoy visiting and a nice big window for us to view them.
When I spied a delightful picture of a homemade birdbath on facebook yesterday, I knew it was the next addition to our yard.
The kids set to work painting after the materials were gathered. If you recall, our table is on the front porch right now during all the construction.
1 14" terracotta pot
1 12" terracotta pot
1 10" terracotta pot
1 16" saucer (I couldn't find a 16" saucer, so I used a 12")
1 6" saucer
Stack the pots upside down from biggest to smallest.
Glue the larger saucer to the bottom of the top pot
Glue the 6" saucer to the edge of the large saucer.
It's so enjoyable to make memories with my kids. Most kids love hands on projects, so set aside an hour or two and make something fun today!
