Easter Egg Bird Nest Baskets


These sweet little baskets are sturdy, simple, and easy to make, and they are strong enough to hold a couple of chicken eggs, and plenty of jelly beans or small chocolate eggs. There are three different sets of directions included, coded by color:

Preschool: Preschool-First Grade, teacher/student directions page 3
Primary: First-Second Grade, student directions page 4
Elementary: Third-Fifth Grade, student directions page 5basket-dir-pri-sm

This “Read and Make” activity will give your students practice in creating a product by reading the directions, which will help prepare them for similar standardized testing items.  They also make good sorting boxes, and you can use them for counting, color matching, and all kinds of other fun center activities.

Hope you’ll all enjoy it!
