My four-year-old has chores that she needs to complete every day.

These include picking up her toys and filling up the dog dish.

One of her favorite chores is filling up the craft stick bird feeder.

We live near Bird Studies Canada and are on a bird migration route.

Many different birds stop by our house for a quick treat as they continue along their way.

I have tried purchasing many different bird feeders over the years but the squirrels end up breaking them.

As an inexpensive option to replacing our bird feeders we have begun creating our own craft stick bird feeders.

Instructions

Lay 4 craft sticks out in a square shape.  Glue the ends.  

Continue stacking the craft sticks in a square shape and gluing as you go until the box is at least 1 inch deep. 

Allow to dry.

Tie yarn to the corners by looping it through and around, then tie in a knot. 

Gather all for pieces of yarn together and pull up to straighten them out and make sure there are no tangles or twists. 

Tie together.  

Hang the feeder and fill with seed!
