Make a Play Dough Bird’s Nest
Here at Hammersmith Community Gardens Association we have another fun activity for you to try with your children at home during this period of home-schooling. Spring marks the beginning of the nesting season in the UK; a time when birds gather all sorts of natural materials to make their nests, ready for their hatchlings to hatch into. So, what better way to explain this special time of the year to your children, than by making their own mini bird’s nest? Enjoy! And tag us in photos if you give it a go – we’d love to see!
If you go out for your daily exercise, you should be able to find some of these natural objects along the way. You don’t need to use play dough, you could make the nest entirely out of twigs, leaves and grass- or whatever you are able to find!
Here is a useful video via the charity, Action for Children, that shows you how to make the play dough:
From all of us at Hammersmith Community Gardens Association, we send our very best wishes to you all.
