If you're looking for a really easy craft, here it is. I took a paper grocery bag and cut out nest shapes.
Kids glued them onto a background sheet.
I was planning on letting them glue on some shredded wheat to create "texture" and a more realistic looking nest. But honestly, I just didn't have it in me. Oh well. Better luck next time, kids.
As they were gluing cotton balls onto the tops of the nests to form the birds, I worked on the beaks. To make the birds' beaks I just folded a piece of orange paper.
And cut out a triangle shape.
Glue them onto the cotton ball birds, add eyes with a Sharpie, and there you have it. Three birdies in a nest. Without shredded wheat. Texture is overrated.
I started singing, "Rub-a-dub-dub three birds in a tub." Don't start. I guaranteed you will be singing it for at least an hour. :)
