Do you have any left over Easter eggs? Well, before you put them away until next year, use them to make this fun baby bird next craft. You kids will LOVE this adorable activity, perfect for any classroom or home art project.
- 2 Brown Paper Lunch Bags
- Shredded Brown Paper
- 4 Plastic Easter Eggs—2 blue, 2 red
- Paper—orange, black, and blue
- Black Marker
- Glue Stick
- Optional: 4 googly eyes
- Cut off the top half of each paper bag.
- Open each bag up and fold the edges down a little bit and fill each one with the shredded paper.
- Cut out 4 little blue bird wings and 4 little black bird wings. Mine just looked like little leaves, but with one end having a flat edge. Fold over the flat edge just about a ¼ inch so you can glue the fold to the egg and the wing will stick out.
- Glue a wing on each side of the eggs about halfway down the egg where the line is. Make sure the top of your baby bird is the rounded end of the egg.
- Cut out 4 little orange beaks. I just folded a piece of orange paper in half, and starting at the fold, cut 2 lines that come to a point. It will look like a folded triangle that opens up like a beak does. Glue a beak on each rounded end of the eggs.
- Now just draw 2 little eyes on right by the beaks or glue on your googly eyes if you are using those.
- Set the 2 blue birds in one of the bags so they are looking up in the air. Set the red birds in the other bag the same way.
- Add some little chocolate Easter eggs into the nests if you would like!
- Have fun!!
