Easter Craft

Easter Craft Time!
What do you need?
newspaper, glue, water,  a bowl for glue and water (a work bowl), a cereal bowl for molding the nest, cling wrap and shredded paper.
Lay newspaper down around your work area. Lay a flat sheet of cling wrap on the newspaper. This way the craft will not stick to the paper. Put cling wrap around the bottom of cereal bowl and set upside down on the flat cling wrap.
Make a mixture 1/2 water and 1/2 glue in your work bowl
start to put the shredded paper into the work bowl, coat the paper with the glue mixture - set the paper on - around the bowl. DO NOT PRESS
Once you have placed the shredded paper on the bowl, let it sit to dry for 3 days. After 3 days slowly peel the cling wrap from the bowl and nest.
A fun Easter Nest!
My friend Sandy helped me do this craft last week at school. The kids loved putting their hands in the glue mixture and then working the paper. You do have to work the paper, coat each piece, but remember do not press it on the bowl, set it on the bowl. They all turned out cute. Add some Easter grass, candy or eggs.
Have fun preparing for Easter this weekend. 
Thank You Lord for Jesus!
