Children’s Museum focuses on birds this month
January is for the birds at The Children’s Museum in New Braunfels (CMNB). Bird nests—some with eggs—feathers, photos and bird houses make up a touchable exhibit. The little house in the woods boasts a hummingbird feeder being visited by two realistic hummers and a tiny triplex bird house over its door. The trees of the evergreen forest are filled with bird feeding samples, like orange peel bowls, peanut butter covered pine cones, an ingenious bagel feeder and strings of popcorn, cranberries and peanuts. No wonder the sky above the trees is filled with birds of all kinds, fluttering their paper wings.
Adding birds to the forest is a daily occurrence as flocks of children come to ground at a table filled with paper feathers, patterns, glue and scissors. Paper plates become snowy owls, construction paper is curled into elaborate tail feathers for yellow beaked varieties and real feathers form gluey masses of never-before-seen species. What better setting to get out the hammers, screwdrivers and paint and make real bird houses? All that was needed was a pattern, wood, a saw, hammers, screws, nails, glue, instructions and someone with knoW-how. The wood was easy thanks to the Boozefightcrs, who dropped in one afternoon to dismantle “Where in the World is Germany?’’ and raise the walls for “Invention Comer.’’ They donated the bird house wood. CMNB gathered tools and supplies. The know-how, and a lot more, was provided by Richard Tucker (“Papa” to students), a museum member, volunteer extraordinaire, expert wood craftsman, and, best of all, a grandfather who loves helping children build things.
Retired racers will be available for adoption at A Pet City, 850 Hwy. 81, W Jan. 28 from IO a.m. to I p.m.
Retired greyhounds make wonderful pets. They are housebroken and adapt quickly to home life and to other pets
(even cats.) Greyhounds do not need a huge arca to live in. At the track they are kept in crates and turned out four times a day. They are notorious couc^i potatoes.
For more information call Pat Massey at 303-2229.
Richard 'Papa' Tucker holds as Todd Swift hammers a roof section onto his bird house.
Tucker prepared bird house kits to make it possible for the kids to construct a house that they, and the birds, could be proud of. Knowing the class would be made up of five- to twelve-year olds, he cut each piece, marked everything for assembly and drilled holes to guide screws and case the job of hammering nails for inexperienced hands.
“I was amazed at how they jumped right in,” said Tucker. “I expected them to be timid with real tools, but they did very well. I guess it was pretty noisy for everybody not in class!”
Mashed fingers were largely avoided—one band-aid in four days of
classes—but bent nails were a common occurrence. The children soon learned what to do about that: Let Papa pull it out and start a fresh nail.
“Using the screwdriver was the hardest part, but not too hard,” noted Todd Swift, “and the roof was easy. I’m going to hang this in my room."
The results—thirteen proud youngsters, thirteen hardy homes for birds, one tired grandfather and a waiting list for the next class taught by “Papa.” Interested student carpenters will not have to wait too long. Papa will return in April with a building project that’s a part of CMNB’s plans for the Sesquicentennial celebration workshops.
