Well how this started hmm… with Chloe always coming with me to home depot she now calls it the toy store just like her daddy. Her wanting to bring a toy home (a tiny hammer by the way) we decided to put it to use. So daddy decided we build a bird house with mommy n mason as well. Why a bird house? Well I thought if we have our own family tree its going to need a bird house. So daddy drilled pilot holes in after cutting all the pieces out and had chloe put the nails in. Funny she would tap the nail once or twice n think it was done. So mommy hammered in the rest after her two taps of each nail. When done we had Mason and Chloe get messy with the finger paint and put their hand n foot prints on top. Thus finishing our family bird house. :) Hope you like it.

Great family project! I like that your daughter refers to the depot as the toy store, you are training her well.

lOVE IT…...Beautiful family as well. Glad you shared it, I have been trying to come up with a small project for my daughter and I (she’s 3) can do, and never thought of a bird house (or bird feeder for that matter).
Well Done!
