Materials

All you'll need for this easter craft idea is:

  • Some cardboard, e.g. from a cereal box
  • A ball of yellow yarn
  • Two yellow pipe cleaners

That's it! I love projects that don't need many materials :-)

Instructions

Step 1

Make two pom poms. Make one of them slighly bigger than the other.

Don't cut open your pom poms just yet. Leave them at the stage where they look like this:

Step 2

Cut open the bigger pom pom, but leave the cardboard in place. Tie a piece of yarn around, between the cardboard circles. Your pom pom should now look like this:

Step 3

Wrap one of the pipe cleaners around the pom pom, between the two pieces of cardboard. Twist it a few times to hold it in place. It should look like this:

This pipe cleaner will becomes the chick's legs.

Step 4

Repeat steps 2 and 3 with the smaller pom pom. The smaller pom pom will become the chick's head. Bend one end of the pipe cleaner back on itself to make a beak, like this:

Step 5

Now it's time to join the chick's head to its body.

See the long end of pipe cleaner in the pic from step 4? Wrap it around the big pom pom, in the space between the two pieces of cardboard. Your chick should now look like this:

Step 6

Tear away the cardboard pieces.

The final step is to make the chick's feet. Bend the pipe cleaner back and forth to make three-toed feet. Trim off any spare length of pipe cleaner with scissors or pliers.

And... *drumroll* here's the final chick! Isn't it cute?
