A fun hands on sensory project that my young special ed. kids enjoy making is a bird's nest. I have them "scrunch" a brown paper lunch bag. Give them an open bag and have them start at the top and roll and scrunch it down. Flatten it to resemble a bird's nest. I have a container of snips of yarn, small twigs, and dried leaves. They glue these with school glue on the nest. To finish off the nest, they glue candy robin eggs in the middle (readily found for Easter treats at this time of year). For a treat after our project I make rice krispie bird nests with jelly beans for eggs.
