Wooden Birdhouses

Description: These unfinished wooden birdhouses are fun to decorate! The roofed huts make the perfect canvas for paints and craft materials.

Ages:  9 to 11

Budget: $12.99 for a dozen; $16 for paints, wooden shapes and glue guns (orientaltrading.com)

Prep Time: 5 minutes to heat up the glue guns

Supplies: Birdhouses (bought through Oriental Trading), brightly colored acrylic paint, decorated and plain wooden shapes to place on birdhouse after it is painted, glue guns

Special Considerations: In the package of birdhouses, there are three different styles. Oriental Trading gives picture directions of how to put together each style.

How to Incorporate the Volunteer: Volunteers’ help children put together the birdhouse and also took charge of hot gluing the house together.
