For the Birds

I took Ivory, her friend and Sylvan to the Mini-Naturalist Program at the Montana Natural History Center.  The topic was birds, nests and eggs.  We held nests, matched eggs to their mamas, went outside, collected nesting materials, watched an osprey pair bring branches to their nest, and then built our own nests. 

Here are Ivory's nests:

They are made of play dough, sticks, leaves, feathers and yarn scraps.

When we got home she added birds.

Lego Birds.


  1. Ah, how sweet! Does she have a tree to put them in? What did Sylvan think?

  2. Yeah. She builds trees for them, and they take rides in the lego car too.
