How we did it:

Materials List

  1. brown paper lunch bag (2)
  2. scissors
  1. To start, cut off the top 3-4 inches of the bag.  You can recycle the top of the bag or turn it into something else (cuffs? a house? a tunnel?)

  2. Cut lots of 2-3" slits in the top of your now-smaller (bottom part of the) bag.  It works best if you cut all the way down to where the bottom folds up. Repeat this for the second bag.  

  3. Open up both bags, put one inside the other and scrunch.  Enjoy your nest that is heady to hold eggs or some other festive decoration.
