Things you’ll need
- White paper plate
- Yellow and orange construction paper
- Large googly eyes
- Glue stick
- Yellow feathers
- Bowl for tracing the head
- Hole punch
- Round head fastener
First, trace the paper plate onto a sheet of yellow construction paper. To make the head shape, use a smaller bowl and trace it inside the top edge of the paper plate circle, making a circle inside a circle. Use the paper plate one more time to trace lines extending outward from the smaller circle to the edge of the large circle, about half way down the small circle. Cut out the chick shape.
Make small snips around the edge of your chick shape. Once you have created this fringe, gently move the edges back and forth to make your chick look extra fuzzy.
Now it’s time to make the egg. Draw and cut a cracked line through the centre of your paper plate and cut it in half along the zigzag.
Glue the chick shape to the rim of the paper plate.
Make a hole on one side of each half of the paper plate and secure together with a round head fastener. You can trim the top portion of the paper plate to look more egg-shaped.
Now you can make the chick’s face! Glue on some large googly eyes. Fold a small piece of orange construction paper in half and cut out a triangle shape. This will make a cute beak. Last but not least, a small tuft of fluff atop the chick’s head can be made with a feather. Glue the tuft in place and there you have it! A fresh spring chick friend!
