Saturday morning the Marshalltown Community College Technology Program welcomed children and their parents to participate in its 8th Annual Youth Build.
Children between the ages of 5 and 12 were able to sign up for a free, one-hour workshop to construct a wooden bird feeder.
One hundred bird feeder kits were donated by Spahn and Rose Lumber.

With the help of their parents, children were able to follow instructions to choose and assemble the materials to complete a wooden bird feeder using a hammer and nails.
MCC students and their instructor, Russ Yarrow, were available to assist with the project.
Each child's bird feeder was given a thorough inspection by Yarrow and several "A's" were awarded. He wrote each child's name and awarded grade on the bottom of their project.
"The kids will be able to take the bird feeders home and can even paint them," Yarrow said. "These projects give people a look into the kind of work we do out here."
