Even toddlers can enjoy this bird’s nest craft!

The middle two boys are studying birds this semester with Exploring Creation with Zoology Vol. 1 from Apologia’s Young Explorers series (Amazon affiliate link).  Jonathan (age 2) loves to do whatever his brothers are doing, and since he has also recently discovered how a glue stick works, I thought he might enjoy this simple craft!

First, Jonathan and I looked at pictures of bird’s nests in the science book.  He was careful to point out all the eggs. 🙂

Then I gave him paper, “sticks” cut from brown construction paper, paper eggs, and a gluestick.

He had a little trouble getting the glue on the sticks, but he had fun building his nest on the paper after I put on the glue!  (Applying glue to the sticks would be a great fine motor activity for 3 year olds!)

He was able to glue the eggs on himself.

The finished bird’s nest is so adorable, and he is very proud that we put it on the refrigerator!
