Spring is magical! I appreciate it more now that I am living in a place that has four seasons. I love to see all of the bright tulips and trees in bloom after a long, cold winter. It feels great to go on a walk in the sun and listen to all of the birds chirping! Those birds are the inspiration for one of my favorite traditions with my kids - designing bird houses!
Each year, I buy wooden bird houses for the kids to paint and decorate. It is so fun to see the different designs they create. The kids are so excited to hang their bird houses on our trees and watch anxiously for the beautiful birds to come! The kids LOVE it!
If you want to share in this tradition you can find pre-made bird houses at most craft stores. Michael's has some two-story ones that I thought were pretty cool! This year I bought these little ones at Target. Hopefully some small birds can fit inside. If your kids are a little older and you want to be really ambitious, I am sure you could build your own bird house which could also be a really fun project! I have seen DIY kits at Home Depot or Amazon if you want a head start.
