I think I've got summer-itis. I haven't posted much because we've been at the park and just playing outside, I don't want to be indoors! I thought that was supposed to stop when you don't go to school anymore!
We did get around to our next letter craft, the letter N for Nido (Nest). I knew Chiquita would like this craft since we have barn swallows with a nest right by our front door (conveniently pooping all over my front porch, but the babies are so cute!).
For our nest I cut a bunch of letter Ns out of brown paper (I used old packaging paper, paper bags would also work well). I put glue in a vague bowl shape on the paper and Chiquita glued down all the letter Ns. For some reason she decided they looked like letter Hs. I guess the middle line is just a little more tilted, I never would have thought of it though.
After we have a good nest we added 3 blue eggs. I was ready to be done here, but Chiquita said it needed a mommy and daddy bird to take care of the eggs. She picked the color yellow and I did my best to cut out something the resembled birds. She added the eyes with marker.
Once again, I thought we were done! Chiquita disagreed. The picture needed a big sister bird! We are trying for a new addition to our family so I get excited when she is interested in siblings.
