I got this fantastic basket in the mail with champagne, caviar, chocolate, and birds nests!
I know my art blogger friends will be able to spot the birds nests right away, enough for at least 3 classes of first graders.

mail there is something coming to you Phyl.
This beautiful basket came from my mother in law, Momma Stinz, who never forgets my birthday and spoils me rotten. I secretly love it, or not so secretly now. I forgot it was my birthday until the UPS guy rang my doorbell. I stopped feeding the baby, pulled down my shirt, make-upless, and hair disheveled opened the door. The UPS guy was totally embarrassed and kept on apologizing. . . I looked down, yes my clothes were in order! I quickly signed for the package, to the UPS guy's relief, and ran inside to open it. A beautiful birthday card and a basket filled with champagne, caviar, chocolates, everything to start a party. The thing I was most excited about was the supplies to make birds nests with my first graders! When I go back in three weeks we will make clay birds (a spring favorite) and nests.
|Paper + tons of glue= Birds Nests!|

this is a drawing a student did before making our birds.
