Easy Bird Nest Craft for Easter

Looking for an easy Easter craft?  All you need is a brown paper lunch bag, Easter grass, Robin Egg candy, and a Peep (chocolate covered, or the old-fashioned marshmallow kind).

Open the paper bag and start rolling the edges out until you reach the bottom of the bag.  While you are rolling, you will have to open the bag a little at a time. 

When you reach the bottom, indent it to make it resemble a nest.

Add your Easter grass, Robin Eggs and a Peep.

I do this with my kiddos at the end of our bird unit in science that I plan to end around Easter time.  They LOVE the project.  This year I think I am going to have them make these paper birds from the Family Fun site to add to their nest instead of the Peeps.
