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!
1. Cut construction paper into thin strips using a scissor. If you have access to a paper shredder, toss your paper in.
2. Tightly cover a small bowl with plastic wrap, then flip the bowl upside down on wax paper. In another container, mix equal parts water and clear glue.
3. Dip construction paper into the glue mixture. Cover the bowl with the wet strips.
4. Let dry for 12-24 hours. Gently remove nest from bowl and remove plastic wrap.
