Paper Bag Nests


I think I love the lead up to Easter as much as Christmas as it is soo much more relaxed and usually means a cool change in the weather. This week, as I had brown paper bags left over from last week I made some little nests. I think they are so cute I thought I would share. They would be great to put little Easter Eggs or biscuits in as well. Here is how I made them...




Roll the top of the bag down and then glue twigs and string around the opening.


I attached some leaves to pegs so that they could be pegged onto the nests. 


The table looked soo beautiful - the children could explore a variety of materials such as nests, grass, chicks, eggs, rice and green shredded paper.
I encouraged the children to count the chicks and put them in the corresponding nests but that was only one aspect of this activity. This Easter activity promoted all sorts of learning from colour recognition, matching colours, recognising the shape 'oval' and the fine motor skill of correcty assembling the egg. Of course there was counting and number recognition as well as lots and lots of language. Not only maths language like 'full' and 'empty', 'half' and 'whole' but language in all the various role playing scenarios.
I loved hearing the children talking, sharing and helping each other. Apart from quite a bit of rice on the floor it was a great activity loved by all!!
