Paper Bag Bird Nest

It recently came to my attention that Rachelle over at TinkerLab was hosting a special kid-directed linky party/contest using paper bags. Well I just happen to have a gazillion paper bags lying around, so I was super excited to get on board with this challenge!

We chose to make a nest because, well, that is what Boo wanted to make! She has a baby golden eagle stuffed animal (doesn’t every 4 year old? The things our kids love!) who has been in need of a nest for awhile now. Keep in mind that this girl is smart as a whip but arts and crafts are just not her thing. I was extremely elated that she actually chose to make something! And she did the ENTIRE project all by her little old self!! Granted, it isn’t anything eloborate or difficult…but to me this challenge was a success because it got Boo CREATING. And I just adore her glammed up birds nest.

 Boo painting and glitzing up her birds nest. Yes, we craft on the floor :).  She also cut raffia for branches, stuck in some feathers, and added plastic easter eggs. On a side note, one of the golden eagle’s eggs contained a small plastic elephant. Love the creativity!

Finished product next to Boo’s baby golden eagle. See the angry birds on the upper right? They are getting ready for a special blog post!

Happy Teaching!
