Birdies in a Nest

Making the Nest

The children made their own nest using different items. First they chose their base (Egg carton tops, apple dividers, scrap foam, paper plates and egg carton bottoms). Next they painted the base with glue paint (mix equal parts of white glue to paint). After the children painted the base of their nest they placed nest making items (yarn, sticks, moss, cotton balls, horse hair, leaves, and colored shredded paper) on their glue paint.

Making the Bird

Children chose how to make their bird. We sat out different items that could be made into a bird. (paper tubes, sections of egg cartons, sections of apple dividers, small boxes and small paper cups) They painted the base of the bird with glue paint and then created their bird using feathers, wiggle eyes, buttons and orange triangles.

Remember it is the process not the product.
