We spent this afternoon with our guests Val, Jen, and Jill (Molly’s Mom). They introduced the children to a variety of different types of bird nests. The children were given some time to explore the nests and draw them. Afterwards, we went outside and the children built their own nests using a twig, straw, and pieces of yarn. Their challenge…the completed nests needed to be strong enough to hold 3 chocolate eggs. In order to succeed, the children needed to work together, compromise and cooperate.
