Design Challenge

Whilst we have been staying safe at home I have noticed lots of birds visiting my garden. I love to watch the birds but they don’t stay for very long, as I don’t have a bird feeder for them.

I would like them to come more often so I think I need a bird feeder to give them some seeds, but I don’t know what it should look like or be made of!

Here are some ideas of what bird feeders on the market look like already.

Can you design your own bird feeder?

When you design it think about…

What will it look like?
What materials you will we need to make it?
How will we stick the parts together? 
How should we hang it up? 
Which materials are best for use outdoors?

I cannot wait to see what you come up with.

Send your designs to: 

If you would like to make a bird feeder at home here are a couple of ways using things from around the house.









Look at this wonderful home learning. Your garden has some lucky birds!

  1. That’s a really good idea. My family are all members of RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) so I’m really interested to see what you make.
