This is what M woke up to see on the table Tuesday morning:Supplies: brown paper lunch bag, glue, crayons or markers, yarn, feathers, anything interesting to line your nest with (you could add in some dried grass and twigs too!).
To make the nest, I rolled the paper bag inward all the way down. M was dying to do this part, but it can be tricky to get it started; eventually it ends up looking like this:
Then it was time to decorate the nest. M started off using crayons, but they were hard to manage on something so crumpled. He switched to markers, which worked much better.
Next he began gluing in the all the fun stuff to make the nest nice and soft:
Look! A cozy little nest!
Perfect for a little mama-made birdie. :) M was surprised and thrilled to see this little bird and her eggs waiting to go in the nest a little later. :)
This was a fun craft project for M, I only added in the little bird because I wanted to give him something special to keep. He is all about birds right now… even to the point of standing at the window at bedtime saying, “I can’t go to bed, I’m listening to the chickadees and cardinals!” :) Evidently he is not above using the sweet little birds as stall tactics (and he knows Mama gets excited when he uses the correct names). It would be fun to do this and use large pom-poms to make birds for the nest.
Have a beautiful day! :)
