Rowans Go Nest Building

Rowans asked last week to look at and learn more about nests. We looked again at the nest Mrs. Smith had found, and saw that it had mud and sticks on the outside, grass and straw inside and was lined with soft leaves.

We started our session with this story…click on the link to read it…The Best Nest Story

Out in the forest, we discovered an ENORMOUS nest! It had just been started…so we decided to work together to help to finish it. The children were fantastic! They worked brilliantly together, finding and placing sticks. Once the outside of the nest was built, they collected lots of leaves for the middle…and added some soft bedding and some wool.

Everyone chose a bird to add to their nest  IMG_0361

Some children chose to make a smaller nest. This one had an arched corridor leading to a living room!
