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!
