Last week, our home preschool unit centered around birds. We had all sorts of fun pretending to fly like birds, making a giant nest out of blankets, learning about the parts of a bird, and making play dough birds and sticking feathers in them (see the bottom of this post for links to some of the great resources I used). My favorite activity (and Little Man’s, too) was when we made our own bird’s nests….
These easy DIY bird feeders for kids are a great trash-to-treasure craft for kids who want to help out their feathered friends. One of my favorite things about where I live is that there are no houses behind me. We back onto a wilderness area, and because of that, we sometimes catch glimpses of really cool wildlife, like a goose defending its nest against a hungry fox, or a whole herd of deer running by. Love. it….
