Having had so much fun making her cardboard house, Lainey didn’t want to give up on her birdhouse theme. She showed interest in making a real bird house, and even expressed a desire to create a whole bird kingdom! We used one of the little house kits that my dad had made for me. Lainey wallpapered the inside, we glued it all together, and then Lainey painted it in bright acrylics. Lainey predicted from the start that the birds will want to fight over the birdhouse. She painted a peace sign to prevent that from happening.
“The berries make the bushes more exciting. The birds will try to peck at them!”
Lainey added many special details to make the birds happy.
“The birds will think they’ve gone to heaven!”
