Week WATER – children made bird bath

And after yesterday’s water activity we were very excited to try the next idea that caught A’s eye while we were checking water features on the net. This bird’s bath is such an easy project to put together with the children that you will find yourself wanting to decorate all the pots you can get hold of…

First you will need to gather:

  • macetas viejas = old plant pots
  • pintura o marcadores permanentes =paint or permanent markers
  • AGUA = water
  • apoya maceta = plant pot saucer

We just put them upside down and placed the plant pot saucer on top. I then “glue” them because the kids will be playing around so I used multipurpose  silicone  sealant in between pots because that is what I had at home but you could use any other suitable adhesive or tile grout, maybe cement or other material you have left at the back of your shed. Maybe you use bigger pots and need nothing to hold them together but their own weight, it is really up to you.

Next we just decorated the pots…

Fantastic way to give some good use to our new markers! You can write with them virtually on every surface…

They sure were having fun drawing and colouring. A lovely activity for encouraging sibling bonding.

And then W decided the bath was missing some colour at the very top of our bird stepping stone:)

and ta da… all done, she said!

 I hope the birds have a lovely refreshing session in these hot days…

Happy pot painting!
