      CRAFT MATERIALS:
      2 small bowls
      Plastic wrap
      Concentrated liquid laundry starch
      Lightweight fuzzy yarn, cut into 3-foot lengths
      Tweezers
      Black seed beads
      Tacky glue 2-inch yellow pom-poms
      Orange felt
      Scissors

      Time needed: About 1 to 2 Hours
      1. Cover a small bowl in plastic wrap. Fill a second bowl with liquid starch, then dip in a length of yarn. Wind the wet yarn in a random crisscross pattern around the wrapped bowl’s exterior. Repeat this with more yarn until you’ve covered the bowl’s bottom and partway up the sides.

      2. Let the nest dry in a warm spot overnight (or as long as it takes for it to dry completely). Once it’s dry, peel it away from the bowl. Peel off the plastic if it stuck.

      3. To make each chick, use tweezers to dip bead eyes into a dab of glue and then affix them to a pom-pom. For a beak, fold the felt, then snip a triangle from the fold. Run a line of glue along the outside of the crease. Press the beak in place. Arrange the chicks in the nest.
