Edible Birds Nests.
When I taught After School Enrichment classes for grades 3-5, one of the projects we made was Edible Birds Nests. I didn’t take good pictures–think sticky-from-marshmallows-hands–so credit must be given to D Magazine’s Jessica Jones for these project photos.
Edible Birds Nests are easy, fun and perfect for celebrating Spring. Need an Easter activity for a party? This one is egg-cellent!
Mold chow mein/melted marshmallow mixture into a cupcake tin.
Once Birds Nests have hardened in the fridge, pop them out of cupcake tin and fill with jellybean eggs.
One teeny-tiny cupcake with one egg. Jessica Jones’ suggestion: Use as cupcake toppers!

•1/4 cup butter
•3 cups marshmallows
•5 cups chow mein noodles
•Candy to fill nests
