  3. To make the birds, rub your cotton balls with chalk.  Add googly eyes and little paper beaks.  Tuck the birds behind the nest.

  4. For the background, start with light blue cardstock or construction paper.  Cut brown cardstock to make a tree trunk and branch, and then use the brown crayon to give it a more realistic tree texture.
     
  5. Cut out green leaves to attach to the branches.  You can bend the leaves to give them texture. Finally, glue the nest and birds in place.
