When I think of spring, I think of new growth and new life. Both of these are so fun to incorporate into the classroom. Many times, kids can explore outside first and then create replicas inside. For this robin's nest craft, it is always exciting to go on a nature walk in search of real life examples. The kids can't wait to come back in to make their own, afterward.
Total Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 1 nest
- 1 piece of card board (at least 6x6 inches)
- 1 marker
- hot glue gun
- craft peat moss
- 3 small blue Easter eggs
- Draw and cut out a 5-6 inch circle from the cardboard. I used an old UPS box.
- Hot glue pieces of the moss onto both sides of the cardboard circle. Make the top side thicker, leaving a dip in the center. This step can become quite messy, so be prepared! And of course younger kids will need assistance gluing!
- Hot glue the three eggs in the dip you left and display!
