So far this year the Bostik blogger themes have been Valentines Day and Easter. This month we had a bird theme and when the box arrived and I saw all the yellow items I knew they would be perfect for chicks.
This is a great craft to do anytime of year, but with Easter around the corner you could also do it as an Easter craft.
Lolly Stick Chicks
Materials you will need…
- Yellow paper
- 3 yellow lolly sticks (plain ones are fine)
- Yellow felt or paper
- Orange pipe cleaner
- Black marker
- Optional – Yellow paint if you have plain lolly sticks
Step by step guide…
- Take the three lolly sticks and glue them together to make a triangle. Set aside to let it completely dry. Repeat if you are making more than one.
2. (optional step) If you have plain lolly sticks paint your sticks yellow and set them aside to dry.
3. Whilst everything is drying take your yellow felt or paper and cut out a triangle that will be placed on the frame and be the chick’s body. Then on the yellow paper draw round your child’s hands and cut them out, these will be the chick’s wings. Also cut out a yellow circle for the chick’s head.
4. Stick your yellow triangle to the frame with some glue. This is the chick’s body.
5. On your yellow circle using your black marker draw on some eyes. Cut a piece of the orange pipe cleaner and stick on for a nose. Then glue the head to the top of the frame.
6. Next glue the hands onto each side of the frame to make the chick’s wings.
7. Cut two small legs from your orange pipe cleaner and glue to the bottom of the frame, as the chicks legs. That is your little chick complete!
Pin for later….
Disclosure: I am a Bostik blogger for 2017 and these items were sent to me for the purpose of this blog post.
