Toddler Crafts: Milk Carton Bird Feeder by Happy Family Blog

Milk Carton Bird Feeder

Bailey loves to help MiMi with her bird feeder and bird bath so when I saw this craft idea knew Bailey would love it.   


  • Milk carton
  • Paint
  • Piece of paper
  • Hold puncher
  • String 
  • Knife 

Step 1 – I did this part while Bailey was at school because I knew she would want to help and knives and toddlers make me nervous.  I looked at different designs with hikers in the front or on both sides.  I picked to do the one in the front but will try the side next time. I cut it with a knife free hand.        

Step 2 – Cut off the piece leaving only a small lip.    

Step 3 – time to decorate.  Bailey loved this part         

Step 4 – use a piece of paper to make a roof. 
Step 5 – after the milk carton is dry punch a hole in the top and add a ribbon.  Fill it with bird seed and hang up outside.  

Do you have a favorite milk carton craft?
