Hello again! The grandkids have gone back home with their mom and dad and it’s very quiet at our house again. We had a wonderful week of fun and just enjoying being together. 🙂 But now it’s time to share some more fun with you! One thing we made while the grandkids were here was some Easter chicks.
You will need some fruit cups, some orange construction paper, some fake feathers, some wiggly eyes, a pencil, scissors and glue. We found out by trial and error that using a glue gun works the best and keeps everything in place better than regular Elmer’s glue.
We used peach cups but mandarin oranges would be about the same color.
Applesauce cups work fine too and we did use a couple of those.
Fold a small piece of orange construction paper in half. Draw a triangle on the paper with one side of the triangle being on the fold. Cut out the triangle. This will be the chick’s beak.
Draw and cut out from the orange paper 2 chicken feet for each chick.
Glue the beak on the side of the fruit cup. And glue the 2 feet onto what is usually the top of the fruit cup. For this project, we’ll use the fruit cup upside down.
Glue on 2 wiggly eyes just above the beak. Glue a feather on each side of the fruit cup. You will definitely need to use a glue gun for the feathers.
That’s it! Your Easter chick is finished! 🙂
Whether you make one or a whole flock of chicks, I hope you will have fun making them! And have fun eating them! 😉
