Community Member Amanda W. of Tykes 'n Tots Preschool & Daycare provides the children with various materials used to build a real bird nest- dried grass, leaves, moss, twigs, dirt, and mud (They collected some of their own). The Children shaped moist clay and added the nature items to their nests. Then, we added pretend birds to the nests.
