Blue Bird Houses
Missy Dudding, with Putnam County 4 H, says it was easy. "I contacted them wanting to find something more durable, something the kids could do and they suggested this project and they took it from there. We had a couple people donate them and we had a couple parent volunteers to cut them out for the kids and the kids themselves will be doing the rest of it."
These kids make building bluebird houses look pretty easy, but sometimes you need some help. That's where this brochure from the DNR comes in.
Right now, these kids don't need a lot of help, but pretty soon, there will be plenty of them on display up and you'll be able to check them out for yourself.
"We work on it all year long and we've taken the echo project and every month they'll work on a different activity and there's a couple you can do and have an exhibit for the fair and this was one of them. We are making bluebird houses, they'll take them to the county fair." says Dudding.
This is a labor of love, and although all these kids are putting the houses together, they all have their favorite part of the process.
Minyera Call says, "I'd rather do the painting part, I'm not good with tools."
MaKayla Morris says, "We are going to make them for birds and give them to old people's homes and places like that."
Another great part of this story...one generation donating their time and effort to help bring a little sunshine...and a lot of bluebirds..to another.
