Continuing with our Birds Unit and moving on to Nest and the letter Nn.
We started off by reading "Are You My Mother?" by P.D. Eastman
The story is about a little bird who hatches from his egg and wonder's where's his mother and begins a journey to find her.
After reading the it was time for our Birds Nest Craft, which we actually started yesterday.
Rags for clean up
Already having our balloons blown and waiting in cups...
I gathered a pile of yarn and she placed all of in the bowl and soaked it.
For more fun we took the bottom of a plastic Easter egg, added googly eyes and a beak to place in the nest. Now we have a baby bird.
Also right now we have birds building a nest right outside my dining room window. We are able to see them building all day and they also sit on my rocking chair and sing! Awesome timing for this to happen!
But there could be a problem, over the weekend it was Mr. & Mrs. Cardinal, now yesterday and today Mr. & Mrs. Wren have moved in. Then I saw Mr. Cardinal fly out of the nest this morning. Now we have two bird species trying to claim the nest. Oh Boy! We will just watch and see.
Thanks for visiting us today,
