How to make a nest- Kids’ craft
Summer vacation started for kids. It is tough time for moms. For mother’s , it becomes difficult keep their kids busy. Most of the moms send their kids to Summer camps. Summer camps are like boons for mothers to keep their kids busy and also kids learn there. Some mothers eagerly wait for reopening of the school, including me :-). Most of the kids nowadays are busy with gazettes, which is very harmful to their health. Instead they can learn some crafts, which will also help them in making projects given in the school. I have already shared some tutorials to make different models for kids’ school projects.
Here I’m sharing a simple tutorial to make a nest, which you can use as pin holder too. This is made using the ball shaped cover of gems chocolates.
