Preschool Easter Project: Paper Bag Easter Nest Craft
Looking for another simple craft idea that you can make with your little ones today to celebrate the upcoming holiday season? You can make this Paper Bag Easter Nest Craft with supplies you already have on hand!
One thing that I love about this craft is it’s simplicity. So easy for little hands, which makes it great for a preschool activity. I also love you can build this craft into a lesson plan around spring and maybe even include some stories of Easter and/or mama birds. You might even have the kids leave their “nest” on their desk when they head out to recess, so that it can be filled with surprises when they return. So many fun ways to include this easy paper bag Easter nest craft into your Easter celebrations!
Paper Bag Easter Nest Craft
- Brown paper lunch sacks
- Green paper Easter grass
- Small plastic Easter eggs
- Hot glue/hot glue gun (white school glue will work too!)
1. Open up your paper bag and start folding the top down an inch or so at a time.
2. When you reach the bottom of the bag, flip the bag inside out.
3. Carefully hot glue the Easter grass into the center of the paper bag nest. If little hands are doing this themselves, then you will want to use white school glue. It will be messier, of course, but messes are fun!
4. Glue each Easter egg to the center of the nest.
As I mentioned above, I love the idea of the kids finding surprises in their Easter nests. Or, maybe they could make them and give them as gifts. If you are using this as a Sunday School Preschool Craft it might be neat to include a printed out bible verse to tuck in each of the eggs!!
Enjoy making this Easter Nest Craft with your family!
