Because we are learning about nests, we spread out and learned about all types of animal homes. I printed off these cards from kizclub for the kids to match. I made each kid their own game. Treyton passed it with flying colors, Lexa did great!! The only two she didn’t get was a bat (cave) and spider (web). I was very proud of her, especially when she asked to “Try again!?”
We went out looking for nests in our yard. The first (and only) nest we found was up on top of the speaker attached to our house. We had one there last year as well, which we had taken down but I guess they can’t get enough of a good thing. ;) Treyton asked why they built a nest there. When I turned the question back to him and asked him what he thought he said “Maybe because they don’t get rained on.” When we had talked about looking for nests the day before, Treyton had told me he wanted to check the tree out by the garden, because when he was out in the garden, there would be a lot of birds around, and he thought it was because they were protecting their baby’s.
I wanted to do more for this week, but with the vacation coming up, we had a pretty light week.
