- a paper plate
- orange construction paper, or you can color a small square orange with a marker
- googly eyes!
- clothes pins
- yellow feathers
- craft glue for your little ones, or hot glue if you are prepping materials for age 2
- yellow paint
- either a sponge to sponge paint, or a foam brush to cover the plate
Step 1: Gather your materials! If you are doing this craft with ages 2-3, then you will want to prep your clothes pin feathers. I used normal Elmers glue and it didn’t work! Use hot glue if you are doing this yourself, if you have ages 4-5 participating then use an Elmer’s craft/ fabric glue (linked above).
Step 2: Get painting! Have your little ones use either a sponge or foam brush to cover the plate yellow! I used a pink plate because it’s what I had handy. White plates work the best.
Step 3: Cut a triangle out of your orange construction paper, now you have a beak! Glue the beak down and add the googly eyes!
Step 4: Add the feathers! Have your little ones build their pincher skills by clipping each clothes pin to the plate. Add the feathers anywhere you want! Some chicks will end up looking a little crazy, but that’s all part of the fun!
