Bird Boxes

Cubs make bird boxesAs part of the DIY badge Cubs practiced hammering, drilling,screwing and sawing wood.  This was followed by the Cubs making wonderful bird boxes.  These were made over a few weeks with the Cubs drawing out the pattern on the wood and then sanding the edges after this had been cut for them.  They then nailed the parts together and put the roof on.  Cubs were allowed to take the boxes home and asked to put them up on their walls for the birds to live in.  We have recently been doing our Naturalist badge and hope that the bird boxes have attracted plenty of birds for them to look at!
