Storytime crafts - A bird's nest

This week we chose ' The mountain that loved a bird' for our story time - reading and crafts session ( by and Stephen Aitken (illustrations). A remarkable book with a profound message and joyful illustrations. Equally enthralling for children and adults alike. It is a little long to do as read aloud maybe for the 4 or 5 year olds, but the sweetness of the tale and the excellent illustrations makes up for that. In addition one could simplify the story for them. The session also helped us to discuss related topics like the mountains we visited, growing plants, insects, birds and nests, springtime, friendship and more...

As we reached the end of the story the first craft idea that came up was - making a nest!
Out into the courtyard we rushed and found some twigs......... and the rest is here in pictures!
