Tadpole Tuesday: Birdhouses (Teri)

Apparently my family has a bird affinity lately. Our city has an annual winter bird festival. It has bird watching walks and a couple of activities for kids. Home Depot always sponsors a free activity where the kids can make their own birdhouses. We did this last year, and it was really fun! They also received a recycled bottle that had been turned into a birdfeeder (you saw last years here). It was a chilly morning, but really fun. Here are some highlights.

I love this picture because it was my attempt to pose my kids and them just wanting to be who they are. I think they’re pretty dang cute! Apparently I didn’t get a great picture of the finished product. My cute daughter decided that she had enough bird houses and feeders at home, so she gave hers both to my nephew for his birthday. He was excited to get something his cousin made!

Have any of you taken your kids to Home Depot for their Kids Workshops or Lowe’s for their Build and Grow Workshops? My kids love them, and the best part? They’re free! It’s so much fun. They each do them once or twice a month. If you call your local store or go online, you can sign your kids up for the next one. My kids have done some really fun projects.
