A Spring Time Craft ~ A Bird Nest

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.

Decorate the inside of the nest with grass, eggs and candy.
