Easy Recycled Crafts: DIY Recycled Bird Feeder

My kids make DIY recycled bird feeders every winter and hang them all around our back yard. 

Feeding the birds in the winter can help them because naturally their food sources are limited in the colder months. 

Making easy recycled crafts is a great way to get kids involved in nature and teach them about environmentally friendly projects. 

All winter long your kids can watch colorful birds come to feed on their homemade bird feeder.
