All you need to learn how to make a bird feeder is an empty 1/2 gallon milk or juice carton and some string. They can decorate the bird feeder any way they want or not at all!
How To Make A Bird Feeder From A Milk Carton:

Step 2. Decorate anyway you like! My daughter used acrylic paints for most of it. She also used crayon and paper and glued that part on.
