Bird Activities for Kids

For the past three days two little birds have been coming by to gather materials from our yard. We think they are making a nest nearby. The girls have been sitting by the window watching them come and go in hopes of figuring out where that nest is. When I spotted these fun bird activities in last week’s Discover & Explore animal theme linky, I knew it was time to do a little home preschool week all about birds. You’ll find sensory play, learning activities, crafts, art, and more.
