|DESCRIPTION||Birdhouse from cardboard milk carton covered with leaves|
Like the birds nest, the gathering of material is half the fun when you
make this milk carton birdhouse. Find sticks, leaves, grasses, pods, whatever nature has left lying on the ground. Cut a door in a cardboard milk carton. With a glue gun, glue on nature's bounty, covering the carton completely.
This project is not going to win any awards, in fact the
finished product is, quite frankly, ugly. We did it because the
children loved making the birdís nest, especially the gathering of
natureís materials. What else could we do, with leaves, sticks, grasses
and the stuff nature had left on the ground, I wondered. So, by cutting
a door in a milk carton and gluing natureís bounty all over it, we
created a birdhouse. This isnít really about handsomely housing birds,
but about foraging for the stuff and using the glue gun.
