Send us your questions

Some of our visitors have sent emails with interesting questions, we decided to start having a space to answer them. In this space the blog "Restless Minds" will answer all questions you send us
Send us your question for the email: Restless Minds.

Science progress affects our daily life and "to know" means you are going to chose right, because it allows you to form your own opinion on scientific everyday issues. On the other hand, having an elegant and harmonious vision of the world where we live in leads to a feeling of intellectual satisfaction.
We believe this kind of scientific day to day knowledge should be encouraged from an early age, and that's why this project was born: science, culture, knowledge, crafts for your restless mind.

DIY- Bird house

Our restless love this kind of crafts. This is how we did our own bird house.
We bought the house already made in the store; of course you can make one from the scratch.

What we need:
  • a plain wood bird house;
  • sand paper;
  • small branches, acorns, leaves, sticks, whatever you can find in the garden;
  • white glue; 
  • varnish;
  • brown acrylic paint, or another color you prefer;
  • wire.
How to:
  1. Sand the bird house;
  2. Paint it with your elected color;
  3. Let it dry for 3 to 4h;
  4. Varnish it;
  5. Let it dry again;
  6. While you wait between the point 3 and 5, look for small branches, acorns, leaves, sticks, whatever you can find in the garden, to camouflage the bird house.
  7. Cut the branches and the sticks in the right size, don't worry if some of them are larger or smaller, nature is irregular.
  8. When the varnish is dry, cover one of the house walls with white glue,
  9. Glue the branches and the sticks, don’t worry with the space between them, we will deal with it later,
  10. Let it dry,
  11. Chose another wall and repeat the step 8 and 9.
  12. Go on until all the walls are decorated;
  13. Leave it to dry for 24h;
  14. Glue other elements to cover the spaces between the branches and let it dry again;
  15. Varnish;
  16. With the wire fix the house on a tree, don’t use nails;
  17. Wait until the new inhabitants move to the new condo.
NOTE: do not glue the box cover (bird house roof) 


Et Voil√°!
A little help for wildlife!

Enjoy!
