Easter Weekend 2 - Easter Eggs in a Nest

Easter Eggs in Bird's Nest

 Today we decorated eggs using crayons and an easter egg dye kit.  While we waited for the eggs to dry, we went for a little walk outside to collect some twigs for our bird nest. 

Then we made a bird's nest for the eggs using a brown paper bag and smooshing it up, and taping it in place on the bottom, then used a glue gun to attach broken sticks to our nest.  I got the idea for the bird's nest from this months issue of Family Fun Magazine.  They also had a really cute idea for decorating easter eggs with melted crayons that I wanted to try but forgot about it until we had already cooled the eggs.
