Bird feeders in your yard will help eliminate mosquitoes. They also provide a bird watching activity for your child! Begin by naming the birds: (Cardinal, Blue Jay, etc.) Try avoiding using words like birdie, duckie, etc. Children will absorb the proper names of objects and animals in their world in time. Download and print pictures of birds from your computer. You may want to make a photo album, bird book, or simply keep the photos in a container for your child to enjoy.
