A time came when it was necessary to put the bird migration topic to rest. There’s only so much one can say about the matter to five year olds. As a fun last project, we created a bird’s nest by layering strips of brown thread over an inverted and inflated balloon covered with glue. Once the glue dried, we popped it and pulled the plastic away from the overlapping brown threads. With a bit of trimming, a cool, little nest came into being. We inserted some yellow Easter grass into the nest, and placed a wooden robin in the cozy creation.
