With the switching of the seasons, now is a wonderful time to clean out your crafting drawers and dig into a kitchen sink craft! Today Gardener Kelsey is showing us how to make DIY Decorative Birdhouses using leftover materials from many of our previous crafts we have featured on our #PullYourWeeds® Blog. From bead to felt, clay to paint, grab whatever materials you have lying around gardeners and let's grow! This activity is fun for gardeners of all ages. Making birdhouse crafts with kids is not just a fun activity, but it also has several social and emotional benefits that can help in their overall development.
