This Easter craft was incredibly easy to make. You could make a whole bunch in an evening or have fun just making one and filling it with treats for someone special. If you want to make it even easier you can use sticky back felt , although good quality double stick tape worked great for our chick.
- Gather your materials. You will need a party treat box ( we found ours at a big box store in their party section), some Easter grass, googley eyes, yellow felt , orange felt, scissors and permanent double stick tape.
- Cut a beak and 2 feet out of the felt.
- Tape them on.
- Tape the eyes on
- Put double stick tape along the inner edges of the treat box.
- Press Easter grass onto it.
Books About Chicks
Lulu the Big Little Chick by Paulette Bogan is an old familiar tale about a little chick who is frustrated about being too little to do anything so instead she decides to go far far away. When I started reading this to my presently obsessed with superheros son he didn’t want to read it unless the chick had super powers. I convinced him to read it with me to find out and it took all of one page before he was hooked. He was so worried about how far the little chick would go and why would she want to go in the first place?! The cartoon like illustrations were a perfect compliment and fresh addition to a familiar tale.
This Little Chick by John Lawrence is just about the perfect board book for my daughter right now, she didn’t even try to eat it! The rhymes are melodic the text full of animal sounds is spot on for our littlest readers . My son and I had fun reading this old favorite to my daughter for the first time. The illustrations are fantastic with lots of contrast and is the perfect length for a quick snuggle and read for wiggly babies who are eager to move.
Wee Little Chick by Lauren Thompson is a sweet almost saccharine book about a little chick that may be small but is just as capable as everyone else. Honestly I was sorta luke warm to the story. When I sat down to write about it I had to grab the book to remember what I wanted to say, which is normally a big clue that it is not too memorable. What I didn’t forget was how much I loved the illustrations by John Butler. Soft , gentle, feathery illustrations of farm animals that are full of realistic detail. We all loved the illustrations. SO while there was nothing wrong or off putting about the text it didn’t leave a lasting impression but the illustrations are what make this book stand out.
