I can thank 1st grade teacher Ms. Valos for coming up with this awesome idea. She had her students collect plastic milk jugs and sticks for a recycling art project, turning milk jugs into bird houses. We cut little holes out for the birds and made slits to put branches inside for their little perches. The students colored them with construction paper crayons, some even colored the sticks. I would loved to have had them paper mached but not having a sink in the portable makes it impossible. Regardless they turned out really cute, and I did hear a student proclaim that this was the best day ever!
