    My eight-year-old son and I have been busying ourselves with this project. We're trying to make some bird feeders for some of his hummingbirds. I got some instructions from a website. Right now, we're almost done with the milk carton bird feeders, and we can't wait how the hummingbirds would react to it. :) We're also thinking of some new exciting and creative projects.

    Another project you could do w/ him is make a bird bath to go w/ that feeder. I think they have do able ideas on DIY and Martha Stewert.com

    I planted a sunflower house w/ my kids this year. I hope it grows, it should be tons of fun and it was so easy to do. I love projects w/ kids!

    Ask your son what interest him... Maybe he likes to draw or maybe he's into cooking too. With my first son, He likes to play with papers. One time I went to a bookstore and saw a book about "ORIGAMI" the art of paper folding. I bought the book and some colored papers. My son loved it! (He's just turning 4 this July 17 so most of the paper folding is done by me) but my son is so amazed with the things and animal shapes we make that then after he can play with and makes stories with... He names the animals as well... This will surely bring out your kids colorful, creative imagination.
