Gifts for kids: DIY bird watching kit

Sharing is caring!

A bird watching kit makes a wonderful gift for boys and girls and I will show you how to put one together. Believe me, it’s a super duper easy DIY project. The kids will love it and their parents as well as it will give them the opportunity of creating beautiful memories together. It’s not only the every day bird watching right in their own backyard but so much more.

My kit was created for a 6 years old boy but it applies to any age: a bird feeder kit, a bag of bird seeds and a bird book. You can add more elements like binoculars or take out any of the three. A bird feeder kit and a bag of bird seeds or a bird feeder kit and a bird book will work just fine.

The bird feeder kit includes an easy to assemble wooden bird feeder, a brush and four colorful paints. It is recommended for kids age 5 and up. The bird book ( National geographic Kids Bird Guide of North America: The Best Birding Book for Kids from National Geographic’s Bird Experts) features 100 species of birds from coast to coast and is packed with tons of fun facts, bright and colorful pictures and information.

The bird feeder kit is great gift on its own. Assembling it will give dad the opportunity of spending quality time with his child while creating something together and the painting part will unleash the kid’s creativity. You can replace the bird feeder kit with a birdhouse kit, if you want.

I placed the three elements in a wooden crate and added a birthday card.

Why choose to make such a gift? A bird watching kit encourages kids to get closer to nature. Besides being a fun gift, it’s also educational in many ways. It will help children improve their:

-observation skills as they to spot a certain type of bird
-listening skills as they identify birds by their songs
-patience as they wait for birds to appear
-deduction as they compare two species of birds

I absolutely love this idea. We're big bird fanciers in this house and boys can be really hard to buy for but this is brilliant. I've pinned it to me guy gifts board because it would work just as well for the big boys too.
