Nature-Watch Exclusive!

Children love hummingbirds!  With Wings that normally beat up to 78 times per second (and can beat as fast as 200 times per second), hummingbirds have an almost magical charm.  But Hummingbirds aren't just playful creatures.  Hummingbirds are pollinators and therefore play a critical role in the environment.

Our Hummingbird Feeder Activity Kit provides all of the materials you need for each participant to assemble their very own feeder.  First they build a gorgeous flower craft around a special tube that will hold the "nectar".  Hang the feeder outdoors and watch as hummingbirds are attracted to the red and orange colors and extract the nectar with their long bills.  A great craft AND a real, functional hummingbird feeder!

Ages 5 & up.
