The kids have been excitedly watching all the bird activity around our house for the last few weeks. A couple weeks ago they watched a bird build a nest on our front porch. Last week they noticed that she was sitting on the nest a lot and must have laid her eggs. To go along with that, they made their own bird nests.
We made a batch of Rice Krispie treats using butter, marshmallows, and Rice Krispies.
I rubbed butter on the kids' hands and they shaped them into nests.
Then they added candy eggs and peeps.
Here is the nest on our front porch. The kids really wanted to know if there were eggs in it and how many. I waited until the mama bird left and then climbed the ladder and held up my camera to snap a picture.
We found this nest in a tree next to our back porch.
