With spring in bloom, we’re on the verge to see a terrific showing of nature as plants and flowers begin to grow and leafy trees get their spring growth. All of this, of course, brings out our furry and feathered friends.

Bird feeders are a neat way to get a front row seat to local nature in your back (or front) yard. Here are a number of handmade bird feeders that are fun projects for kids to partake in welcoming spring!

Pine Cone Bird Feeder (via Dana Made It) Here’s a “5 minute” bird feeder that requires only a few items to get going and is easy enough for little hands to help make from start to finish.

Cookie Cutter Bird Feeder (via Pretty Prudent) These cute bird feed shapes also make pretty ornaments for your outdoor trees. Kids will have fun helping select shapes to use as well as forming the “cookie”.

Bird Seed Wreath (via The Mother Huddle) For another hanging bird feeder idea, this “wreath” will surely get some of the neighborhood birds flocking to your yard and will look so festive hung up.

Tin Can Bird Feeder (via And We Play) Here’s a cool feeder that has a place for the birds to relax, complete with perch. Plus, it helps upcycle items that would otherwise be thrown away which is a great activity to show your kids.

Paper Tube Bird Feeder (via Creative Jewish Mom) Another cool upcycling bird feeder craft, this one takes toilet paper tubes and transforms them into charming hanging bird feeders.
