Spring is coming and we are ready to welcome warm weather. Now is a perfect time to think about incorporating activities into your program that relate to gardening, nature, and of course, birdhouses.
Benefits of Including Nature in Your Program
Observing nature has proven benefits to the mind and body. There are a growing number of studies that suggest bird watching and creating outdoor habitats for birds can increase morale and reduce stress. Spending time outdoors is also important for today’s youth with the increased use of digital technology and video games. By planning some nature activities along with building and decorating birdhouses, both kids and adults can learn more about the importance of birds in our ecosystem, their unique features, and even incorporate STEM by discussing the aerodynamics of flight.
Use a variety of decorative and functional wooden birdhouses, bird feeders and butterfly houses for your group to create and decorate. In addition to the benefits of a group craft activity, these projects can help to create a home for birds and butterflies in a garden, along a walk way, and in the trees. Continue reading →
