Make Like a Bird and Nest
This is a great project that encourages kids to really think as animals do, and in the process, make something interesting. Ask them how they think a bird makes its nest and see what they say. Then tell them you are going to be like birds today and make your own nests!
Using your own backyard, or a neighborhood park, help your kids gather the items they think a bird would need to make a nest. These nests may not look pretty, but kids will understand how hard it is to create something out of just what nature offers. If they ask for glue, don’t give in! This is a nature only project!
