Spring Chick

To make a cute little baby chick, start by tracing an oval on a sheet of yellow construction paper, (or free-handing one if you are better than I am at that sort of thing).

Next have them trace, or help them trace, both their hands onto the yellow paper. If you are careful you will be able to get the oval and both hands on one page. Cut out all the shapes.

Using a small piece of orange paper, fold it in half and cut a triangle with the base on the fold. This will give you a beak that can open and close. Then cut two little clawed feet, also on orange paper. Glue on googly eyes, and feet, and beak.

Using small brads, (I happened to have yellow which worked out nicely) attach the hand prints to the sides of the oval to become the chick's wings.

Tape a couple of yellow feathers onto the bird's head, just to be cute.

Play with your new friend!
