RSPB: Big Garden Birdwatch…Family Fun

If there’s one thing we’ve learnt over the years of asking people to do Big Garden Birdwatch, it’s that the birds don’t always turn up on time.

For those few minutes when there’s not a bird in sight, keeping your little ones enthusiastic can be hard. But help is at hand.

From colouring sheets and make your own bird masks, to finger puppets and online games, we’ve got plenty of activities to help keep your kids entertained during the quieter seconds of your Birdwatch hour.

You can also use these activities before and after your Birdwatch!
