The combination of the garden whispering to me that Spring is coming, the RSPB big garden birdwatch this weekend and our installation of a new nest box on Sunday has got me thinking about the birds this week. We're also trying to complete our RSPB Bronze Wild Challenge where we have to complete different tasks about either helping or experiencing nature. One of these tasks is to upcycle some of your rubbish so we thought we'd upcycle an old magazine into a nest or bowl or hat depending on your perspective!
It will probably end up as a bowl for pompoms or feathers in Jessica's play shop I think. We didn't use nearly as much paper this time, we've got gaps and have not trimmed the edges so it's definitely more nest like than our first attempt last Easter. We did it all in one go and it dried within an hour or two - fabulous!
