Kid’s Craft – Construction Paper Bird’s Nests

http://www.weknowstuff.us.comConstruction Paper Bird's Nest
My children and I created these adorable construction paper bird's nests for Easter last year. We have made this into a holiday tradition around our house. This is also a great way to recycle used construction paper.

I originally found my inspiration for these little nests in this Country Living article 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 we have in our home. My children had a lot of fun making a big goopy mess.

They were very surprised to see 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 paper shredder, toss your paper in.
