Easy DIY bird feeder from items in your own kitchen! Use an old mason jar or reuse a jar from the refrigerator, tie a ribbon around the center and stick a wooden spoon into it. Turn sideways and hang from a tree for an instant bird feeder.
This is a lovely idea for a family activity this summer. Kids could then try to identify birds that visit the garden to feed. I also like that it doesn't have the nasty animal fats that commercial bird feeders tend to have
