Still have plenty of plastic eggs left to recycle? Try this super cute birds in a nest craft and use up some of those Easter eggs!


You’ll Need:

2-3 Plastic Eggs

Construction Paper

Brown Paint or a Brown Party Plate

Craft Glue


Black Permanent Marker

Make It:

1. Paint your paper plate brown. If you have a brown party plate, skip this step.

2. Begin crafting the baby birds. First, fold a small piece of orange construction paper and cut a triangle. This will make the beak.

3. Cut wings out of construction paper. Again, you can go with a triangle shape.

4. Glue beak on top of egg. Use a permanent marker to draw two small eyes on either side of the beak.

5. Glue on wings.

6. Put glue on the bottom of each egg and adhere to plate.

7. Cut brown strips of construction paper to make the nest straw. Glue the strips around the edge of the plate.

Thanks for sharing the great idea Busy Bee Kids Crafts!

    I use only half an egg for each bird and it worked great. Afterall you glue them to the plate…half the cost on eggs. :)
