For those who may not be comfortable with measuring and cutting wood, we suggest using a bird feeder kit that will give you all of the supplies you need for about the same price you would pay for materials at the store. Below are some of our favorite bird feeder kits:

Pine Pro Bird Feeder Kit

This is a very simple bird feeder that is easy to make. The kit includes all of the wood necessary (made from pine), but you will need to supply your own sandpaper, glue, and paint if you wish to paint it afterward. Most of the reviewers found it great for a project to do with children and that it can be assembled in under an hour or so. For under $10 with free shipping, this is a great value.
