MAKING a bird-feeder with children is a wonderful opportunity to discuss birds, their habitats and their needs. Bird-feeders also provide the children with the opportunity to observe birds in their natural environment.

During the last month, some of the pottery club pupils made bird-feeders for their gardens in their pottery lessons.

In addition to making something practical and useful, playing with the clay was very therapeutic and lots of fun. Our pupils love the tactile nature of clay; they can roll, squeeze, twirl and pull clay in all directions, and it develops their motor skills and imagination while having fun.

Through the process of making the bird-feeders, they learned different techniques of manipulating clay — after painting and decorating their bird-feeders, they took them home to hang them in the trees in their gardens.
