Chicks in an Egg
This adorable little chick is an easy and fun way to celebrate Easter. You can use them for placecard holders, create centerpiece or place in baskets.
* yellow pom poms
* plastic Easter eggs
* wiggly eyes (2 per chick)
* orange construction paper or felt cut into a triangle and fold in half
First, start out by transforming pom-poms into chicks! Cut out a small triangle beak from orange felt or construction paper and glue it onto a pom-pom. Then glue two wiggly eyes just above the beak. Place a dab of glue in the bottom of the egg. Place the chick in the egg. Let dry.
You can use any size pom-pom you like. If you use a large pom-pom, you will only need one to place in the egg. If you use smaller pom-poms, you can make a few chicks to sit inside the egg.
Age: 4 and up
Time: 10 minutes plus drying time.
Cost: Less than $3.00 for a dozen chicks
