This part will not really be seen, so being neat isn't necessary


Colour the top half of the paper plate blue (for the sky).

Cut the second paper plate in half.



Colour the outside of one of the halves brown, just like the bottom of the other plate.



Staple the half you just coloured to the bottom of the other plate, creating a pocket which will be the nest.

Cut out some egg shapes from the remaining paper plate half.

You may want to cut out an egg that's been cracked open too


Glue the egg shapes to the front of the nest.

In order to make the two birds seen below, follow the instructions found here. Any birds will do though.

Tuck the birds into the nest (the open bases of the Easy Paper Birds should keep them from falling down, but you can add some stuffing if you like).
