I recently saw a very productive garden that had used clever bird scarers, so I set about making my own. The kids quickly saw the potential of my bird scarer as a toy and began playing with, and arguing over it! So I drew a face, named him Silver and left them to it.
When they tire of their new puppy I will tie him in the apple tree to float around and scare the birds away. What a fantastic use of a resource which I (ahem) may have around the house from time to time (for cooking or medicinal purposes of course)! I love finding uses for things that would otherwise end up in the rubbish........... and I LOVE that the kids looked at it through their own eyes and re-purposed it in a completely different way!!!
