One of the best ways to learn is by doing, so with the help of some paper plates and a little inspiration from the birds we built a bird nest craft that’s complete with a little fluffy bird inside.  Making this paper plate craft isn’t just fun, it’s a perfect opportunity to teach about the life cycle of birds, eggs, animal homes, spring and migration.

Have child cut a beak out from the orange paper by folding it in half and cutting a small triangle from it. Glue the triangle and the googly eyes to the puff ball to make the bird.

Glue the puff ball bird onto piece a. My kids were having so much fun with their puff ball birds that when we went to glue them on they freaked out so we let our birds stay glue free so they could come and go out of their nest as they pleased :).
