Easter Eggs - Blue Bird Nest

Dying eggs is always such a fun thing to do with children and they are always fascinated by the little tablet dissolving in the water.  Use vinegar for more vibrant color, but just water for pastels.  

Start off with brown paper lunch bags, brown shredded craft paper or green grass, and scissors.  It always looks better when you have fun shaped scissors!

Cut the bag as if you were going to cut it in half, but leave about an inch in the center to make the handle.  Then, start at the top of the bag and cut vertically until you meet the first cut.  Like this:

Fill with craft paper or grass...

Then...The fun part....

add a little felt wing, a beak and little eyes and you get...
