Crumbled Tissue Paper Chickie

From baby chicks to floppy-eared bunnies to vibrant eggs, this craft allows your kids to use their imagination and creativity. And you probably have all the supplies on-hand.

Blogger behind the idea: Blissfully Domestic

Best for kids ages: 4 and up

What you’ll need: Construction paper, tissue paper, gift bag (old or new), old cardboard, glue, scissors, tape, pipe cleaner (optional) 

How to make it: Using a piece of yellow construction paper, cut a circle for the chick shape. Next, scrunch up a bunch of tissue paper squares into little balls. Make as many as you want, depending on how big you want your decoration to be. After you make enough little balls of tissue paper, spread glue all over the construction paper cutout. While the kids are gluing the tissue pieces on, you can draw a pair of eyes for the chick and a beak. Add some orange pipe cleaner for feet if you'd like. To finish, take the gift bag and let your kids cut it in half vertically. Wrap the gift bag pieces around one side of a cardboard sheet and tape. Ta-da!
