An Easy Kid Craft Idea

Here's an easy kid craft idea using milk cartons to create colorful birdhouses.

Easy Kid Craft Idea

Your favorite feathered friends will love setting up "house" in this amazingly simple craft project. Once you've finished your house, hang it from a tree and watch as birds start building their nests inside it.


  • One half-gallon empty milk carton
  • Acrylic paint
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Craft foam sheets, stickers, your choice of decorations


  • Wash and dry the milk carton
  • Cut one or two holes in the front of the milk carton (we used a round cookie cutter as our template)
  • Paint the milk carton one color (choose your favorite)
  • Cut out different shapes from the craft foam and glue in place
  • Hang with fishing line to the nearest tree and watch as birds build their nests inside
