To Make a Bird Feeder Kit of Your Own, You Will Need:

1. Scoop bird seed into plastic zipper bags and seal shut. Use an index card to create a bag topper. Decorate the bag topper with washi tape, if desired. Staple the bag topper into place at the top of the bag.

2. Use kitchen scissors to cut corrugated cardboard into shapes. Use a hole punch to add a hole near the top, and thread a ribbon through the hole.

3. Use paper and markers to create a “Make a Bird Feeder Kit” sign. If desired, use washi tape to attach the sign to the inside of the shipping box. (You may want to add a bit more packing tape to the ends to secure it in place.)
