This is a fun craft idea- made from pre-cut pieces that you assemble into birdhouses, and then paint as you'd like! I loved creating these Make and Paint Birdhouses with the kids as part of our DIY summer camp at home!
We purchased these birdhouse kits online from Amazon- the come as a package of 12 ready-to-assemble birdhouses for less than $20!
They were so easy to snap together, although we did add a little wood glue along the seams just to provide some additional stability.
The kit contains three different styles of birdhouses, and since there were a dozen of them, each of my kids was allowed to assemble two birdhouses.
I think they looked really nice even in this natural wood state.
I love how they turned out- and I think that they look fantastic hung in trees all over our yard!
