More Sid the Science Kid

In an effort to keep from boring myself with inane posts about pain, I now bring you something completely different.

A couple weeks ago we learned about animal homes on Sid the Science Kid. Then we built a nest and made a bird to live in the nest.We gathered materials from the yard: sticks, twigs, stems, leaves, dried grass We even found a bug in our materials that we gently returned to the outside.

We used a bowl to help form the nest...

...and glue to hold it all together because we aren't as good at weaving these things as birds are...
and made a bird for our nest...


...and ended up with this.

I just saw Sid for the first time on Friday! It was about excerice. My 14 year old was with me and we were laughing so hard! I LOVED it! Seriously, it is a very educational show and great for the kids too!

Cool project and educational too. I hope a bird moves in soon and is happy to have a nest ready to go.

That is VERY cool! I bet any bird would pay good money for that beautiful home!

It looks like Sid the Science Kid is pretty popular. When we first started watching it Princess really wanted to do the observations and explorations that Sid and friends did. I found great informationon the PBS Kids website. It lists all the materials you need and has step by step instructions. Princess had a lot of fun decorating her science journal (a sketchbook from the craft store).

Stephanie, thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! It's nice to see you here.

And a shout out to everyone. I love reading your comments. :)
