Bird's Nest Art

Throughout the spring we watched a momma robin build a nest in our lilac bush.  She laid four eggs and guarded them day and night.  Soon little baby robins hatched and we watched as they grew and learned to fly.  No one has been back to the nest for a while now so decided it was safe to take it down and examine it.  Eva loved looking at it but decided it was lacking- it needed eggs and a bird!  "Let's make a sculpture!" she shouted and Daddy was game for helping her do so.  First they gathered some rocks to use as eggs.
Then they used a pinecone, some bark, a leaf and two little berries to form their bird.
They needed to use some wood glue to hold everything together but soon had a bird to rest in the nest.
I think it turned out adorable and I love how creative kids can be when we let them do their own thing!
