We've really been enjoying watching the birds gather nest-building supplies in our yard this season. We decided to lend a helping hand and add a little of our own flair. We gathered any dead grasses, small branches, etc. from the yard that looked like good, helpful nest-building items, and we threw in some leftover yarn from the stash. With all of the colors, it will be fun walking around the neighborhood admiring the nests. This was a fun, easy, and time-consuming educational project for my almost 3-year-old.
