Why we like it: What a way to entertain delightful songbirds as well as noisy kids! This birdhouse is an absolute joy.
What can be more serene than waking up in the morning to bird’s song? Well, this birdhouse is designed to bring in the most gifted singers to your yard. Plus, it gives you the option of painting and decorating it as you please. Or you can just let the kids take care of that. It can easily be the centerpiece of your garden, an eye catcher for those birds that love to sing and are also looking for a cozy spot to kick back.
The birdhouse itself is 7 inches across, 6 inches in height and also 6 inches in diameter. And it is better equipped than most other birdhouses on the market. It comes with 6 paints which are weather resistant as well as a paintbrush and a simple set of instructions. Yes, it is going to appeal to your children very much, not just the birds. It even has an actual thatched roof. It is one of the bestsellers on our list, currently selling out in over 80 countries worldwide.
Darice 9184-91 Natural Wood Log Cabin Birdhouse
Why we like it: It is magnificent to look at straight out of the box and will look even more so when you are done painting it.
This birdhouse is slightly more on the advanced side, appropriate for kids over the age of 7. It is designed to be utterly engaging and fun to both, the assembly process and the painting. We cannot get over how it resembles an enchanting forest cabin and birds seem to like it just as well. True to form, it is made from wood and is a good 8 inches tall. It is not what you would call heavy either, weighing in at just over a pound.
Our guess is that you will be spending hours of fun painting this thing and then proudly setting it up in your garden. It will be an incredibly satisfying experience as well as a swell home for your feathered friends. The build quality is good enough to last a very long time so long as you maintain it well. We also happen to think it is a fantastic gift idea too. If you have got a friend with an outspoken love for the wilderness and life in a cabin, you can do no wrong in buying this birdhouse for them.
Gardirect Wild Bird Classic Nesting Box
Why we like it: Fits well with any garden and can easily accommodate a family of nesting birds.
We know that this nesting box from Gardirect does take a while to attract any attention from the birds. So we highly recommend that you set it up well in advance of the breeding season. Keep tabs on which month that will begin in your neighborhood. Also, do not allow for any perches to be made on the birdhouse as that might be a beacon for pest birds. And make sure to remove the front door so you can clean it better.
This birdhouse fits well in a number of different locations, from agricultural fields to gardens, yards, and golf courses so long as they are all free of those awful herbicides and pesticides. Not only can they be directly harmful to birds but they can also diminish their important food items like insects. But anyway, back to the nesting box; it is plenty spacious measuring 5 inches long, 5 and a half inches in width and just over 8 and a half in height.
Melissa & Doug Birdhouse Craft Kit
Why we like it: Give your birds a new home and develop a stronger bond with your little one in the process.
If you want to spend quality time with your child doing some fun activity together, consider putting this birdhouse together and decorating it. Not only will you have accomplished something fun and creative, you will have also created a new home to the delight of your feathered neighbors. The kit is simple. You get a set of wooden panels, screws for putting them all together, 4 pots of paint to make it a proper art piece and a paint brush, of course.
In case you were wondering, yes, you can call this a DIY project for kids. The assembly is simple and fun, and the painting process is even more fun. The screws are an important feature of this birdhouse because we all know the potential hazard of leaving your kid alone with nails and a hammer. At some point, that is not going to go well. Besides, screws also withstand temperature changes better. However, we strongly recommend this set for children above 3 years of age since those screws still are a potential choking hazard.
Pinepro Unfinished Wood Kit, Bird House
Why we like it: Presents a good challenge for kids and it’s durable enough to last a very long time.
This one, for the most part, can only be handled by ages 8 and up but hey, we reckon even someone slightly younger than that can put it together just as well. All you get with it are 9 wood panels, some nails, and a leaflet containing instructions. As ever, you must exercise every safety precaution when working with kids and nails. Thankfully, the wood panels all have preset holes in them for where the nail should go through them.
On the whole, this birdhouse offers less for a creative mind and more for a puzzle solver. While the idea is to let the children assemble it by themselves, it is always good that they do so under the watchful supervision of an adult. Not only can there be an accident with the nails, but even at age 8 and a bit beyond, the choking hazard is not unheard of. The birdhouse itself is expertly made and good enough to last several years.
Plaid Wood Surface Crafting Birdhouse
Why we like it: Not only does it function as an ideal birdhouse but also as the perfect wooden canvas.
We know that Plaid specializes in bringing endless hours of fun and creative challenges with its products for people of an artistic disposition. So what would you expect of them when you find out they have built birdhouses as well? They sell both the birdhouse as well as the accessories you need to paint it. Their devices are equally accessible to people of all ages, sexes, and preferences. Here is one wooden canvas that is simply begging for your inner artist to take control.
What we love most about this birdhouse is that, in addition to providing good, comfy accommodation for birds, it is highly customizable to suit your personal taste. So each one sold is, therefore, a little bit different because now it contains the priceless blueprints of its owner’s handiwork. It will not only work as a unique and beautiful addition to your garden but also the same as a present to someone. For what it offers, it is tremendous value for money.
Toysmith Paint-a-Birdhouse Kit
Why we like it: A DIY kit that leaves less time on assembly and more time on painting.
Some of us like a DIY kit that is thoroughly engaging. Some of us, not so much. For those of us, whose attention span can only last for so long, this birdhouse ought to be just the thing. It does not need you to assemble it from the ground up. You will be done before you know it. And it also means you can save up more time for the painting part. It will still be a highly educational and fun activity for you and your child.
Just that your child should be above the age of 5 at least, or old enough to know that some things do not go in your mouth. Even adults can enjoy it if art happens to be their hobby. The pre-assembled set is made from a high-quality material and comes with its own hanging chain, 4 pots of paint, and a paintbrush. This is not a particularly big birdhouse. It will only entertain small sized guests from birds to squirrels.
WildBird Care Cedar Bluebird House
Why we like it: An ideal bluebird accommodation that offers safety from both the weather and predators. It is also rather easy to maintain.
As you may have already gathered from its name, this birdhouse was designed specifically with bluebirds in mind. Its most prominent features include a mental guard, six ventilation holes on the underside of the roof and a small circular entrance with a pull-out front door which may be locked when needed. It is as ergonomic for birds as it is for people. Nothing has been given in excess, and nothing has been undercut either. It will be delivered to you fully assembled and ready to go.
Safety for the birds is obviously a high priority to consider with any birdhouse and this one is rather well equipped in that regard. It has a stainless steel spray anti-bite block which comes in two sizes. Once it has been nailed just outside the entrance, it will effectively deter any predators from trying their jaws on it. This birdhouse is also well prepared for harsh weather too as well as keeping itself clean and hygienic. You will not need to clean its interior for at least a couple of weeks.
Woodlink Audubon Traditional Wren House
Why we like it: Designed specifically to welcome the bird species you want and keeps the others out.
The birds in your neighborhood could always do with another good nesting site. Why not serve their interests well with the Audubon traditional wren house? It has a cozy entrance hole that is just over an inch which makes it very inviting to wrens and chickadees and not at all attractive to birds like sparrows. There will be no overhead perches on it either. The roof is slanted in its design and continues a little beyond the entrance to offer some much-needed shelter.
There is a ventilation gap situated on top to keep the inhabitants from suffocating and the feeder is highly resistant to the elements and connected with screws rather than nails so it can last through drastic temperature changes as well. Also, there are drainage slots at the bottom which will effectively diffuse excess water from building up. It is already fully assembled on delivery and can be suspended easily from a tree branch or hook with the help of a cable already attached to it.
