                                      Cotton Ball Chick

                                                            

By: Amanda Formaro

Difficulty: Easy

Age: 6 and up

Parental supervision is recommended

These delicate little cotton ball easter chicks are perfect as a table decoration for Easter dinner!  Use one near each place setting for a fun conversation starter or put a whole bunch of them in an empty egg carton in the center of the table!

What you'll need:

  • 2 yellow pom-poms or yellow cotton balls
  • Half of a clean egg shell
  • Small piece of orange craft foam
  • 2 google eyes
  • Scissors
  • White craft glue
  • Wood doll base (the kind used with clothespins)
  • Pastel colored craft paint
  • Paintbrush 

How to make it:

  1. Paint the doll base and set aside.
  2. Be sure that the egg shell is clean and dry. Glue the poms-poms inside the egg shell.
  3. Cut the craft foam into a triangle to make the beak. Glue onto the top yellow pom-pom.
  4. Glue google eyes above the beak.
  5. Glue the egg shell to the doll base. 

Tips:

  • Egg shells are very delicate so be sure to handle carefully so they don't crack.
  • Some stores carry colorful cotton balls. If you can find yellow ones, they'll work well as a substitute for pom-poms in this craft.
  • You can add small pom-poms in the front of the egg shell to act as baby wings if you like. They add a cute effect!
