Step 1- Cut:
Cut 3 ovals out of the blue paper. Cut 3 triangles out of the yellow paper about ½ inches wide. Cut the paper plate in half.
Step 2- Drizzle:
Drizzle the whilte glue on top of the paper plate. Add a generous amount of glue so all the paper and crinkle will stick. This is really fun for the kids to do themselves!
Step 3- Apply:
Apply the 3 blue ovals in a row to the cut side of the paper plate. Press down firmly. Apply the beaks to the top half of the blue ovals using some of the glue from the plate. Glue the googly eyes above the yellow beak.
Step 4- Feathers:
Stick the feathers to the side of the blue oval birds to make their tail feathers. These can be added to either side of the birds wherever your child wants them.
Step 5- Nest:
Use the craft crinkle paper to cover the rest of the paper plate. Add more glue if there are any bare spots and add more crinkle paper. This will make a super fun textured nest! Don’t forget their name and year on the back & enjoy!
