Paper Plate Spring Bird's Nest Craft Kit
I love this craft and so did my little ones. It was very easy to put together. We talked about colors, sounds, and how to follow the picture/instructions. It turns out really cute. I was hesitant because I am so tired of using paper plates for things but this was really cute. Everything except the nest has super sticky on it, The nest is cute even though its a little funky. It requires glue. Love this one!

Nice way to welcome Spring!
Six four year olds worked on this cute project in my Pre-K class and were able to assemble it independently...a real plus was that the piece were stickers instead of pieces that had to be glued in place..and I especially loved that each kit was individually packaged. One minor wrinkle would be the stringy nest...loved the dimensional effect but the application was a lil troublesome for some but overall...a huge success!

big hit at birthday party
Really cute craft and 10 5 year old girls really enjoyed it. They were able to complete it by themselves and the end product is great. Great buy.

great project for our group
We used this project for about 175 third grade students, and it worked out very well! The only minimal criticism we have is that the nest pieces were a bit difficult to work with. However, we just encouraged the students to use a smaller amount of the nest pieces, not all of them and glue the ends of each strand group.

Terrific Craft Project to Welcome Spring!
This activity was really fun and I introduced it to a multi-aged group of kids all of whom had a parent or two with them so even the youngest could enjoy working on it. We only found one problem and that concerned the "stringy" nest. Most of the kids unraveled the thing as they unpacked it and then it was very tricky to get it to adhere or stick to the plate. Still, droopy nests or not, each result was fun and different!

Really cute and easy to put together. Came with a lot of extra birdies. Lots of "awwww's" when finished.

The craft is stickers (yeah!) and the only thing that you have to glue is the nest. Both my 3 and 5 year old enjoyed this craft and were able to do it independently! I'm so glad Oriental Trading is carrying items that are stickers rather than glue.
