Milk Jug Bird Feeder

What You'll Need
How We Did It
Let an adult cut or puncture a hole in the top of the milk jug next to the opening (which is where you'll string the string)...
...and also cut out a large opening on the side of the milk jug for the birds to be able to come and go for the seeds.
Set out a paper towel (to protect your workspace) and set up a painting station. We used arcylic paint (so that the paint won't wash off when it rains).
Now let the kids paint. (Don't paint on the inside of the milk jug, since that's where the birds will eat.) My son loved this step!
Now let the kids lace the string in the top of the milk jug. My son laced the string through the hole I'd created as well as around the opening of the milk jug, then tied a knot.
