Aren't they the cutest little chicks. And so easy.
~Just have the children color or paint yellow a circle that you've drawn on paper or a slight oval shape is nice too.
~ You can use round eyes you've drawn, have them color that too. Or you can use google eyes. I used the coloring ones because I didn't have enough google eyes to go around. Color a triangle for the beak.
~Color the foot shape with 3 toes as in the pic.
~If the child is able have him cut all the peices out, if not you get the pleasure. I did hand over hand with the smaller ones.
~Have them glue the eyes, beak and feet on. Now I let them do this totally on their own with just a touch of guidance for the smallest ones. Don't expect perfection. Some of the chicks look like they've been nipping a bit of brandy, but that is part of the charm of a project like this.
~To make the wings trace around the child's hand and again do the cutting. This cutting is hard even for the four year olds. So I even helped them when it came to the finger part. Glue to the sides of the body.
~Don't forget to write their name and age on the back if it goes into a keepsake box.
Voila a whole flock of cute birds to decorate your house.
And we did these cute bunny crowns yesterday and played bunny role play all day. You can make little holes and hutches out of piles up blankets. They loved it.
