birdbath

Kids can invite birds to their organic veggie garden to eat thousands of pesky insects, aphids and bugs that could destroy their plants. Kids can use unglazed terra cotta pots to create a colorful bird bath. Kids can get 3 different size pots at the garden center that fit together as shown in the picture above. The large 18” terra cotta plant saucer makes the perfect bird bath. Kids can add 2 little 4“saucers make water dishes to glue on the sides of the large saucer for butterflies.  At the local craft store, kids can get their favorite colors of acrylic Patio Paint. These acrylic paints can also be used for other projects like decorating terra cotta pots that can be planted with flowers or herbs as gifts. To make detailed designs, kids can use Painters Opaque Paint Permanent Markers. After painting the pots and saucers with bright designs, kids can cover them with Krylon Acrylic Crystal Clear Spray Coating. Kids can let them dry over night before gluing the 3 pots and saucer together with E600 glue.  Kids can enjoy watching the different birds and their antics when they come to visit their garden bird bath.
