Spring Fun with Birds!

Spring time can be such a fun time, seeing new colors popping up everywhere, bird’s nests being created, and babies being born. Gardening and planting flowers or vegetables can be such a great grounding activity and may offer lessons about the process of helping something grow and come to life. Another fun way to help your child feel a part of springtime involves bird’s nests…how amazing would it be to look around and see your positive influence on nature!

A simple and fun project to help birds nest:


You will need:

  • a bird suet feeder
  • a few handles of colorful yarn (4-8inches in length)
  • you can add dry twigs, pine needles, or leaves as well

Simply put the yarn and other materials in the bird suet feeder and hang in a tree and voilà! Then just sit back and watch how the colors begin to appear all around woven into bird’s nests.

(For approved materials for bird’s nests please visit  and look under the section Nest Material)
