I chose to translate the poem קֵן לַצִּפּוֹר - A Bird’s Nest. It is a classic, every child in Israel knows it, and most importantly it is one of Ori’s favorites. I hope you like it too.
I couldn’t find any other translation for this poem, so...when you can’t find it you just do it. With THE brilliant mind of my friend Anat we have got it done.
By/ Hayyim Nahman Bialik
Translation/ Anat Weinstein and Tali Buchler
– הַס, פֶּן תָּעִיר –
in the trees
and in the nest
there lay eggs three.
Inside each egg
-hush…, do not stir-
Is a sleeping hatchling
A tiny baby bird.
Inspired by this poem we have crafted a nest with 3 little painted eggs nesting peacefully within.
I have posted the tutorial on growing up creative as an Eco kids craft project. I hope you will enjoy making it as much as we did.
WARNING:This is a messy project but it is a mess well worth cleaning.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
