Birds in a Nest

What You’ll Need:
-Paper plate
-Scissors
-Stapler
-Brown paint and paintbrush
-Glue
-Pom-poms
-Popsicle sticks
-Colored paper
-Googly eyes

Directions:
Cut the paper plate in half and staple the rims of the halves together. Have your toddler paint the “nest” brown. While it’s drying, you can create the birds: glue the pom-poms to the end of the popsicle sticks. Create beaks by cutting out triangles of colored paper, and glue them onto the pom-poms along with the googly eyes. Then put the birds in their nest with some glue.
