You’ll be dyeing Easter Eggs anyway, so get two activities for the price of one! Save the egg carton and make this cute chick. Once you cut out the sections, the kids can decorate on their own while they’re waiting for their eggs to dry.
What you’ll need: an egg carton, a pair of scissors, a finepoint black Sharpie, your favorite adhesive or a glue gun, construction/scrapbook paper, small white pom poms (or a small white bead or button)
How to make it: Start by cutting the sections of an egg carton apart to use for the body. Next, cut all the parts you’ll need for your chick, such as a beak and wings. Use glue to piece the parts into the correct places on the cardboard sections. Cut a crest shape out of the construction paper. Next, cut a small slit in the top of the egg carton and insert tab, then fold over and glue from the inside of the egg carton. Then, cut a diamond shape out of construction paper. Fold the small diamond you cut out in half and attach to make the chick's mouth. Draw eyes on your chick using the black Sharpie. Finally, attach the beak.
