day thirty - august boredom busting

Can you believe we've reached the penultimate day of our August boredom busting challenge? It's gone so quickly! 

So here we are at day thirty, and today's activity is to make a simple bird feeder. There are so many different ways of making an easy food hanger for the birds in your garden. Perhaps you would like to try recycling a plastic drinks bottle into a bird feeder, or maybe making a bird food cake. Or if you fancy something really easy how about this bird food kebab?

Try spotting all of the different birds in your garden too. Have you got any sparrows or robins? If you're not sure which birds are making themselves cosy in your trees, then check out this brilliant bird spotting guide over on the RSPB website. 

P.S. If you fancy sharing photos of your homemade bird feeders over on instagram or facebook use the hashtag #augustboredombusting. I'd love to see!
