We made a nest from old yarn, we'll use it on our nature table for a spring decoration when it finally dries (she really used a lot of glue). We also made a lot of play-doh nests and Penelope played with her ugly duckling family for a long time. She was really fascinated with the story, which we read this week and it was cute to see her acting it out. Violet was thrilled with her mama and baby ducks and played with them so happily, though she kept breaking their heads off and I had to keep fixing them.
Penelope used her nose to guess what I held up for her to smell. She guessed right at peanut butter, coffee, an orange, ketchup, mint, and rose. She guessed the baby shampoo was body lotion, body oil, and moisturizer, which were all close, and she guessed the thyme was "something we like to cook in soup, I think" which was also pretty good. She didn't know onion, which surprised me.
We are really appreciating the beautiful, functional art that nests truly are, and we plan to put some various fibers out in our yard and see if any of them show up in some of the nests that are currently being built around us.
