Do Bunnies Really Lay Eggs?

Spring has sprung in our neck of the woods! (And my allergies can prove it...)
Time for an art lesson with bird's nests and colorful eggs. And since we're making bird's nests, lets give 'em some texture.
Materials:
9x12 background construction paper
4x6" white construction paper (for the eggs)
crayons
scissors
white glue
pasta noodles, we used spaghetti because it's fun to break into pieces (When I told the kids the truth about the fact that these noodles had been sitting in a dirty cupboard in my garage for over a year, not one child put any in their mouths.)













Hey, who says an egg can't be in the shape of a football - (this little guy was so proud of his idea:)
Thanks to San Gabriel Elementary artists!!!!

What a wonderful idea. I will try this with my children.

Thanks Sarah, hope your kids enjoy! (Does the Easter Bunny bring fancy eggs in your country too? --- sorry to be so naive?)

Yes it does. Bunny puts the candies in the eggs and hides them in the house. My children love to find them.
