This is a great project that encourages kids to really think as animals do, and in the process, make something interesting. Ask your child how they think a bird makes its nest and see what she says. Then tell her you are going to be like birds today and make your own nests!
While exploring your own backyard, or a neighborhood park, help your kid gather the items she thinks 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 what nature has to offer. If she asks for glue, don’t give in. This is a nature only project!
