I saw this post from Happy Hooligans and we just had to try out our own version. All you need to make these cute little yellow chicks are a few toilet paper rolls (cut in half), yellow paint (of course you could use any color for different colored birds), orange foam sheets (for the beaks and feet), yellow feathers (again, any color will do!), google eyes, and glue. I put some of the yellow paint into an old box and the kids and I rolled the tubes in the paint to coat them. After they were dry we added the eyes, feathers, beaks, & feet!
These cuties can also be used as place markers for an Easter meal or spring celebration by writing names on the chicks themselves or adding a piece of card stock with the name and place the card on top of the chick’s head. Happy Spring!
