Window Nest Box

Has your child ever wondered what kinds of things birds use to build a nest, how baby birds poke through an egg, or how momma birds take care of them? This healthy curiosity feeds into the first grade science curriculum, which teaches how living and non-living things change and grow. Attach this simple birdhouse to a window and breathe some life into what your kid's learning in school. The solid wood house has a clear plastic panel at the back for easy viewing and strong suction cups attach securely to any window in your home to give your child a front-row seat to one of Mother Nature's finest performances. A sure way to stoke a love for science and give your first grader a bird's eye view! (HearthSong, $14.98
