Splish splash I was takin’ a bath!

It’s fun hav­ing a bird­bath in the gar­den. Lots of birds will come for a bath, es­pe­cially black­birds, thrushes and fan­tails. Other birds will visit for a drink.

B uild­ing a bird bath is easy fun and the birds will love it! Max built one out of ter­ra­cotta pots and a large ter­ra­cotta saucer. Just don’t let the cat near it!

You’ll need:

3 x ter­ra­cotta flower pots of dif­fer­ent sizes 1 x ter­ra­cotta saucer A tube of “liq­uid nails” or out­door glue

How to make it:

Put the pots upside down on top of each other, largest on the bot­tom to small­est on the top. Glue around the bot­tom of the small­est pot Place the saucer care­fully on the top, press down and leave overnight to set the glue. Put in the gar­den and watch the birds fly in for a bath!

You can dec­o­rate your bird bath if you like, but you’ll prob­a­bly need to “seal” the pots first with a polyurethane sealant so the paint will stick. We left ours

au na­turel!
