tissue paper chicks.

Easter is right around the corner and I had to rush to get our craft on! This is an easy craft that you can put together with your little one in no time. Milo liked doing this project because he got to do just about all of the work, even the cutting.

heres what you need:
IMG_6360Paper
glue
tape
googly eyes
orange pipe cleaner
yellow tissue paper or streamers
feathers

Cut a circle shape to your desired size out of white or yellow paper. Cut your tissue paper into all kinds of shapes and sizes. this is a great step for your child if you have child-scissors because tissue paper is really easy to cut and there is no exact science here. Put some glue all over the circle and have your child place the tissue paper on it until its totally covered. Glue the eyes and nose in place. Glue (and tape for extra support) the feathers to the back of the piece, as wings. Cut your pipe cleaner to four pieces (two longer, two short). bend the short piece around the long piece to make the feet, and affix with glue (and tape!) to the back of the chick.

Display proudly!

Here’s another fun easter craft we worked on last year.

Milo had his friend over on friday, and since easter is this weekend, I wanted to find a fun project for them to work on. I didn’t have yellow paper, so i had the boys use finger paints to paint some paper yellow. Once it dried I cut out the pieces and had them glue it to the paper. They did yellow handprints for wings, and orange handprints for feet. They drew some hair on their chicks and that was that! This kept them busy and they really had fun doing it.

Happy easter everyone!
