This is an all-time kid’s favorite. It requires an easy set-up, and very flexible. Rabbits do not need lots of capital, or space. A standard balcony works just fine.
First, get a rabbit-rearing-book for the kids. Then, make a decision on type of hatch to buy – or build. Depending on your area, guide kids on how to feed them. Feeds can be purchased in grocery markets or picked from the fields, in case of a rural set up.
Most homes already have poultry. In that case, it’s a matter of allocating a section to the kids. Make it known that the birds are their responsibility and teach them the basics of chicken-rearing. Chances are they are farmers already. Insist on management, and how to make it a profitable past time.
Besides adding ambience to the home, doves and pigeons are very hassle free. Just a basic wooden structure hung from the eaves of the family house. They need little daily inputs. Birds always have a commanding market, so income is assured.

Toys made from old furniture or from items in your recycle bin, toys made from stuff you already have around the house. Within your circle, you’ll find a lot of families willing to buy toys from your kids.
