Baby Birds in a Nest



A few weeks ago Maddie watched an episode of Sid the Science Kid where they made bird's nests and Maddie has been asking since then! Today was actually a nice day, the snow has melted and the sun is out so we headed outside to find some bits o' nature.


Maddie has a great passion for sticks so this was a great adventure in the woods!


When we got home we found a few other odds and ends to add to the birds nest materials.


Maddie was thrilled when I handed over the bottle of glue and told her to go at it!

Time to build a nest.


While Maddie worked on her birds nest I made little birds to stick in it.


And here is the final product! I have to say Maddie's nest is a heck of a lot cuter than my goofy looking birds! ha ha!

Very cute idea. I wonder if I might do that with my kindergarten students since we have started studying birds.
