Making Nests

margarine containers, cut down in size
precut strips of recycled paper and magazines
green and brown paint
small paintbrushes
Styrofoam eggs

Have children glue bits of paper inside and out of precut margarine containers. Let nests dry overnight. Let children paint their nests using brown and green paint. Don't forget to explain how birds build nests, what they use and why they build nest. Give children a few Styrofoam eggs to place in their nests.
