After story time we headed outside to look for a birds nest that I knew was up in a tree.
I asked the troops questions.
Why did the mother bird build her nest in the tree?
Do you think the babies are still in the nest?
What is the nest made of?
So after knocking the nest out of the tree we sat on the grass to examine it. Now this was a whole 15 mins. A child's attention span is remarkable. They were really excited about the nest and that was it. Amazing. 10 to 15 mins of nest exploring it was off to run from one end of the yard to the next. Got to love a child's simple joys.
