I won't lie to you: this craft was a bit hit and miss. Cakey's aunt gave us some little foam birds as part of an arts and crafts kit. I knew Cakey would be capitvated by them so I put them away for a special project.
On a day trip to the country I noticed a huge ash tree was shedding loads of little twigs.... perfect to make bird nests. This was the HIT bit – Cakey loves collecting and was very excited to pile twigs into a bag to take home for the nests. We also went on a feather hunt which was great fun.

No amount of encouragement would get her to add twigs so I sat down and made a nest myself. A little bit of pva glue in the bottom of the container, some twigs, a bit more glue, more twigs and so on. I pressed it all down and glued in a cute birdie.
