Bird's nests!

Fantastic first grade bird nests on branches!

Some stuff we collected from the park:

The nests we created from all of the sticks, grass, leaves, fun nature things, (and pieces of that strange brown paper that I have oodles of from my recent bridal shower gifts):

And eggs of course!
(Model magic painted with tempera.)

The backgrounds were collaged tree branches on watercolor resist.

 The result is a bird's eye view of a nest resting on a tree branch. 
I hot glued the eggs on to the nest and the nest on to the branch image.

  1. Absolutely ADORBS! I love that you all "scavenged" for nest materials just like the real birds. Thanks for posting! Happy summer art adventures!
