Egg in the nest sorting game

Yesterday I made my own Easter grass and I am using part of the colorful shredded grass to make a sorting game for the kids…

I started by gluing a handful of colorful shredded grass to paper plates. This gives a little bit of a bird nest look but with lots of spring colors…

I will set out the colorful “bird nests” along with a basket of plastic eggs that are the same color for the children to use as a sorting game…

I am thinking that I may even get some smaller paper plates and invite the children to make their own colorful bird nests…

The remaining shredded grass will be used for sensory play along with more plastic eggs and other items for sensory play. The children can mix up all the colors as they wish in the sensory table…

Don’t you just love all the spring colors?
