Attract some birds with a homemade nest!
Bird’s Nest of Sticks
Encourage your child to create their own bird’s nest out of sticks! Have them observe a real bird’s nest in your back yard or from a picture on your phone or computer. Gather small sticks around your back yard and neighborhood. Bend, break, and twist them into a small bowl. Ask your child what a bird might keep in their nest! Food? Leaves? Put your nest outside!
