Kid’s Craft – Construction Paper Bird’s Nest

We Know Stuff  Construction Paper Bird's Nest
As I was recently flipping through my new Country Living magazine, I came across this craft for papier-mâché   bird's nests. I thought it would be a great craft to do with my kids using some of the massive amounts of construction I have in my house. The kids had a lot of fun making what they thought was a big goopy mess. They were pretty surprised when they saw that they had actually created little bird's nests. Very cute for Easter!

Materials:
Construction paper
Glue
Plastic wrap
Small bowl

Directions:
1. Cut construction paper into thin strips using a scissor. If you have access to a shredder toss your paper in.
