How to Make a Baby Bird Nest Kids Craft
- Step 1:
NEST: Take half of an 8”x11” brown cardstock paper, draw a circle that takes up most of the half, and cut it out. Take brown tissue paper, crumple them, and use the glue stick to stick them along the edge.
- Step 2:
TWIGS: Take small pieces of cut brown pipe cleaner and glue them to the outside of the nest for twigs.
- Step 3:
WINGS: Glue feathers to the large pom pom.
HEAD: Glue the eyes to the smaller pom pom, then glue pom poms together.
- Step 4:
BEAK: Make the beak by folding an orange cardstock in half, and draw a triangle along the folded edge, then cut and glue to the head.
WORM: You can add a worm by drawing an S shape onto pink cardstock, cut and glue inside the beak.
- Step 5:
EGGS: Make the nest for the “eggs” by using half a pipe cleaner, shaping it into a circle, and twist to secure.
Quick Tip! Jelly beans are also substitutable for M&M’s.
- Step 7:
Take green pipe cleaners and twist around a pencil to make vines.
- Step 6:
Assemble the bird nest. Use glue stick to glue the vines, the birds, and the eggs to secure onto the bird nest.
