What You Need:

Paper or styrofoam plate
Crayons
Markers

Easter grass
Glue
Scissors
Stapler

First Step:
Cut your plate in half. Then have your little one color both halves of the plate.

Second Step:
Cut your foam pieces to make the bodies of the birds and cut 3 triangles out of yellow foam to make your bird beaks.

Third Step:
Glue the google eyes and beaks onto the birds

Fourth Step:
Staple the plates together, and then glue the birds to the back plate having them facing foward and far enough so that you can see them looking out of the nest. ( as shown in title picture)

Fifth Step:
Place Easter grass into the two plates and have it look messy looking for a natural looking birds nest. Then hang up your adorable spring creation!
