DIY Wood Birdhouses
Great Craft for VBS
I needed a simple craft for us to use for our VBS Day Camp that we had this year, so I chose these bird houses. I LOVED them and all of the kids enjoyed putting them together and painting them. We had around 70 children ranging from ages 3 years old to 11 years old and everyone seemed to enjoy them. Our VBS was for three days and the craft time was one hour each day. The first day the children put them together and we added the tacky glue (also purchased through Oriental Trading) and let them dry over night. The next day we painted the base color with the Tempora paints (purchased through OT) and then the 3rd day we used smaller brushes and the children painted their own designs on them for a final personal touch.
I was very pleased with our purchase. The only problem I ran into is that I didn't order enough. I ordered a total of 60 and needed 70. Out of the 60 I ordered, I only had 1 that we had to cut slits into. Very much worth the price and quality was very good I thought.

Good Craft for Cub Scouts
My cub scout troop had lots of fun with this. At first we were a little confused because there were 3 patterns. But once we figured it out the boys had fun. They decorated it with stickers, foam bugs and markers. We are using them for centerpieces at the blue and gold gala dinner. The boys will be proud to show them off to their family members.

Girl Scout Camp
We bought these birdhouses to do at a multi-age level camp out and the kids loved them. It was easy to assemble and we put just a little glue on them to make sure they stayed together.

Great Spring Project
I bought this project to do with children in my Day Care Center. They have been a big hit. They are fairly easy to assemble. Only the youngest 5-6 yrs old have needed some assistance. The kids loved painting them and decorating them. We used stickers for decorating and then used a sealer. Each one turned out unique and the kids were very proud of their bird houses as should be!

I bought these to do in a second grade classroom. They were easy to assemble but had to reinforce with wood glue. I used them for a Mother's Day gift. I would definitely buy these again. After painting, they turned out really cute.

Mother's Day gift
I like to buy these bird houses for my 1st grade students. Pretty simple for them to construct and decorate to fit their own personalities. I get sweet notes from their Mothers after receiving these cute houses on Mother's Day.

I was surprised how easy the birdhouses were to put together.
Also they were a perfect size, larger than I expected.
I painted mine brown, and decorated with gingerbread stickers and fake candy, fake snow & glitter. very pretty for gift giving and decorating. My 3 yr old granddaughter painted one several shades of blue, and hung it in the tree for her birdie friends.

Fun project for the boys (3rd - 5th grades)
Most of them were able to succeed with a little help getting started. We did glue the top and bottom to the walls so they would not come apart.

This was a big hit!
We used these for my daughters 'birdhouse' themed b-day party and all of the kids loved them as the party favor. They spent several minutes coloring them and decorating them. We also loved that there were three different style options to the kids to choose from.
