The Craft: Duck Headband
What you’ll need:
- Plastic egg (one half for each bird)
- Construction paper
- Paper bag
How to make it:
Cut off ¾ of the top of a lunch size paper bag. Roll the bag down to form a nest. Shred the part of the bag that you cut off to use later for bedding in the nest.
Fold a small piece of orange construction paper, cut out a triangle on the fold; this will be the bird’s beak.
Cut out two construction paper wings for each bird. Make a small fold at the bottom of the wing. This will give you a place to put the glue.
Glue your beak and wings onto your birds. Most plastic eggs have air holes on them, which look great as your bird’s eyes. If your eggs don’t have air hole, you can draw some on with a permanent marker or use wiggle eyes.
Put some glue on the bottom of your eggs and glue your birds into the paper sack nest.
Place the shredded paper in the nest around the birds and your nest is complete.
