To make these simple bird's nests you will need:
paper lunch bags
dried grass, leaves and twigs
plastic eggs or play dough
Ask your child what materials he thinks birds use to construct their nests. Then give them each a brown paper lunch bag.
Help them roll the sides down and form it into a nest shape. Now take them exploring outside for nesting materials such as dried grass, leaves, tiny twigs, feathers, etc.
Have them arrange these in their nests, explaining how the birds use their beaks and feet to make their nests. Let them decorate the outside of the nests with markers or paint.
Then give each child a plastic egg or some play dough and have them make an egg to place in their nests. Talk about how the nest protects the egg and keeps it warm until it is time for it to hatch.
