Hoop and loop birdfeeders

Hoop and loop birdfeeders being made

Hoop and Loop is a simple fun activity that can be used by groups of varying abilities and requires very little set up time and preparation. This activity invites participants to create a bird feeder that they can then take home which is a great way of extending the experience of an outdoor visit. By using a breakfast cereal for this activity you can open up discussions about how cereals go from field to plate. Requires some dexterity and hand eye coordination.
