Bird-Watching Activities for Kids

Splish-splash, this birdie is enjoying his bath.

Birdbath Activity

Birds like bathing in shallow water, and you can make the perfect bath for them using an upturned garbage can lid.

What You'll Need:
  • Garbage can lid
  • Pebbles
  • Water
  • Terra cotta flowerpot (optional)

Fill the lid with a layer of pebbles so that it's weighted down and will stay put. Set the garbage can lid on top of a stump in your yard or on top of a terra cotta flowerpot. Fill the lid with water, and wait for all those birdies!
