Butterfly Feeder: There are many ways to make a butterfly feeder. Let’s take a jar and clean it up thoroughly. Take the jar lid and pierce a hole in the centre. To pierce a hole, use a nail and a hammer, and gently make a hole. You need a sponge to insert in the hole. Now, attach strings to the jar so that it can be hung in your garden. Fill the jar with sugar water and seal it with a lid. Invert the jar; the sugar water will reach the sponge. You can also stick some flowers on the inverted jar to make it realistic. Hang the inverted butterfly feeder in your garden and wait for beautiful butterflies!

Artificial Pond from Tyres: You can make use of the old tyres in your house. Dig a hole in the ground which can fit your tyre. Clean your tyre thoroughly before placing it in. When the tyre is fitted inside, seal it with cement and let it dry for a day or two. Now you can add water to your small little pond. If you want your pond to look more appealing, you can decorate the edge with coloured rocks. Make sure you replace the water when it gets dirty as you wouldn’t want mosquitoes to breed.
