We've been sent a wonderful selection of craft items to get to grips with, and the minute The Boy saw the three different sized polystyrene eggs he declared that we'd be making a family of Easter chicks. And so armed with acrylic paint, feathers, googly eyes and foam feet we set to work.
A Family Of Easter Chicks
- different sized polystyrene foam eggs – one for each family member
- acrylic paint
- googly eyes
- coloured feathers (to match the acrylic paint)
- coloured foam (to match the acrylic paint)
- orange card
- Bostik glue dots (or thick PVA glue)
- Paint each egg a different colour for each family member. Leave to dry and then paint with a second coat.
- Cut out chicken feet from the coloured foam, each different coloured egg should have matching coloured feet.
- Use the Bostik glue dots to stick the feet to the base of each egg.
- Attach the googly eyes to the front of the egg using the the glue dots.
- Place a glue dot on each side of the egg, and attach a matching coloured feather pointing down and away from the front of the egg at a 45° angle.
- Cut out a diamond shape from the orange card. Fold this in half and attach to the front of the egg as a beak, use a glue dot to hold it in place.
I was sent these products for the purpose of this post.
