discounts and great project ideas for bird house kitsA swell project for kids aged 9 to 99, bird house kits have come a long way from the clunky, boring models of the past. Anything but boring, newer designs work the mind with their puzzle-like assembly. Many requiring no nails or glue, they make fantastic projects for school and youth groups, and real nesting sites for wild birds. Being fanatical backyard birders ourselves, with a commitment to conservation and the environment, you bet we’ll be happy to discount any bulk orders for bird house kits!wooden bird house kit requires no nails or glue

Several schools have already benefited from this offer, as well as the birds and the environment. For instance: Village Community School in New York purchased over 80 bird house kits for a park make-over last year. Aside from a generous discount, we donated nesting materials, a bluebird book, suet cakes with fun holders, and ideas for easy and inexpensive birdbaths. Together these items helped create a very bird-friendly habitat.

 birdhouse kits by box for birds are innovative, fun and functionalSometimes a forgotten project, birdhouse kits are the perfect choice for school kids, youth groups, and families too. What better way to teach the importance of conservation and stewardship to the next generation? So many great lessons can be tied into birdhouse kit projects!

Innovative, fun to assemble, and totally functional, these wood birdhouse kits provide real nesting sites for wild birds. In the off-season, they make for perfect roosting spots too. Real estate is tough out there, and competition for nest sights is increasing as habitat continues to shrink. Non-native birds like House Sparrows and Starlings are to blame for much of this competition with our native song birds.

The “Box for Birds” comes in three great designs; traditional (shown here), Modern, which is a copy of the famous Frank Lloyd Wright House, and a church design too. They require no tools, or glue, and come with puzzle-like assembly instructions. The gist is sliding pieces of sturdy birch plywood that fit together in a snap! These substantial birdhouse kits may be painted, stained, or left natural. A fun project for kids and adults alike!

Please help house the birds 🙂

bird house kits for a new york park make-over

Totally fun Recycled Plastic Bird House KitsAn elementary school in New york City has a great idea that’s going into action! Eighty school children at Village Community School will each assemble their own bird house kit, decorate, paint it and help install all 80 bird house kits in a nearby park.

When administration first contacted us, we were more thrilled with the idea itself, than the net profit from a sale. So much so, a deep discount was offered on the bird house kits, and they received a plethora of extras to further entice birds, and to get the kids more involved while making their project a huge success.

Chickadee, Wren and Eastern Bluebird wooden birdhouse kits were ordered, but 16 packages of assorted nesting materials were graciously added. In addition, there was a wonderful Stokes Bluebird Book, and 24 “Pop-Outz” recycled plastic suet feeders, (which are perfect for offering nesting materials) along with a pamphlet on “attracting nesting birds” for each child to take home.

Although bird feeder kits and bird food were thought not to be a smart idea for the area, we also sent along a few suet cakes and explained there would be no ground waste with which to contend. Now I can’t wait to see pictures of the project in progress or the finished product. Park services will be taking care of the water aspect as far as birdbaths or small ponds, making sure there are ample fresh water sources to help birds thrive. The birds in this area of NYC are getting a great make-over!

By the way… the tooled leather birdhouse kit shown here is actually recycled plastic-and super fun to assemble. It provides a real nest site for feathered friends and lasts for years to host many successful broods!

Fun Frog Birdhouse kitMost birdhouse kits are pretty straight-forward, in pine, or possibly cedar, they represent a pretty typical-looking nest box. Plenty of folks show an interest for birdhouse kits with more detail, like windows, porch railings and trim work, but no companies we know of have yet to manufacture something like that.

I met someone who hand crafts these fun birdhouses and inquired about offering them as kits instead. They would be a hoot to paint, in solid colors, or prints, or even patterns.
