Easy Bird Feeder Crafts for Toddlers


No matter how old you are, there’s something fun and awe-inspiring about seeing wildlife up close. While we may not be able to see any safari animals outside our kitchen windows in Boerne, we can still welcome wildlife to our yards. One of the best ways to do this is with bird feeders. But before you go out and buy a bird feeder, take a look at the ones below that you can make right at home.
