It was so cute to watch and help Sammy's class make bird feeders out of recycled bottle waters. Each class took turns lining around a table. We (the adults) cut out two holes thru the bottle. One on one side and one on the other. Right below those two holes, we made holes small enough for a straw to fit through all the way. Finally, a long piece of string was tied around the bottle top, so that it can hang on a tree. Once the straw was in place, string tied and names were written on them, the kids headed over to the fill up station and filled their bottle with organic bird food. The look on their face was priceless! I enjoyed very much helping every class, starting from my sons class all the way up to 1st grade. All different ages, responses, interests and attention but ALL with the same objective....to teach them how to take care of their planet for a better future!
While his class did this project because of Earth day, it would be a great thing to do with your kids anytime.
