Nature, Art and Discovery Program: Baby Birds and Their Nests

nest with eggs

Wednesday, April 24 at 1:00 -- Participants will observe many different types of real bird’s nests from the Audubon collection. This will allow them to feel and learn about the natural materials that birds use to make nests.

After listening to a story about a mother robin caring for her nest and observing the real nests, each child-caregiver pair will then make their own nest out of natural material. Once the nest is made, each child will use air dried clay to sculpt several eggs and one parent bird to place in their nest. Each group will get to keep their nest and once the clay dries, they will be able to paint the eggs and birds.

Suitable for children ages 3-5. This program requires registration. Please register online or by calling 781-741-1405 ext. 1403.

This program is made possible by the Mass Audubon's Museum of American Bird Art and funded by the Hingham Cultural Council and the Mass Cultural Council.
