Red Birds in a Nest

Foam clay has to be the most amazing invention.  Ever.  It is so cool what you can create.  At the museum, I had the children make little nests out of the brown foam clay – adding sticks to give it the “nesty” look.

We formed our birds by making;

  • a large oval for the body
  • a small sphere for the head
  • a little cone for the nose
  • two flatten balls in the shape of an oval for the wings

So simple.  A great way to teach three-dimensional shapes in a hands on way!
