● 2 Small Popsicle Sticks
● 2 Google Eyes
Orange Construction Paper

This is a great craft to do with preschoolers and younger kids on a budget because it takes very minimal supplies. The construction paper, you can take one sheet and cut it into four squares and that’s more than enough to get what you need from it.

Step 1: Assembling the Popsicle Sticks

Line up your large popsicle sticks side by side. Take one of your smaller popsicle sticks and apply hot glue to it. Then take the smaller popsicle stick and lay it flat along the top of the lined up large popsicle sticks and press down firmly. (Do this again along the bottom of the large popsicle sticks)

Step 2: Painting the Chick

Take your regular paint brush and apply your first coat of yellow paint. The popsicle sticks usually absorb the first coat fairly quickly so you can go back over it for 1-2 more coats to get a solid yellow base.

Step 3: Yellow Wings and Hair

Take the yellow construction paper and cut a simple “oval eye” shape x 2 for the wings. Then act as if you are cutting out a tree with two branches on either side for the hair.

Step 4: Orange Feet and Beak

Again as mentioned above a “tree with branches” is needed for the feet, you will need two of these. Then the beak cut a small square and then you will fold one corner to the opposite diagonal corner to form the beak (fold the crease firmly to make it look like a beak)

Step 5: Adding all your parts

If crafting with preschoolers or young children, consider using Glue Dots for them to adhere their chick parts, rather than using the glue gun again.
