Make an adorable Easter chick from a styrofoam egg! This little chick is sure to make you and your child smile!

What you'll need:

  • A 2 13/16" X 3 7/8" styrofoam egg
  • Yellow craft paint
  • 2 yellow pipe cleaners
  • 1 red pipe cleaner
  • 2 googly eyes
  • Orange construction paper or craft foam
  • 2 orange pompoms
  • Paint brush
  • Scissors
  • White glue
  • serated knife
How to make your Easter Egg Chick Craft:
  • Use a serated knife to carve the very bottom off the styrofoam egg so it will sit up.
  • Paint the egg yellow and let it dry. (tip: setting the egg on a dixie cup is a great way to let the egg dry)
  • Glue two googly eyes onto the egg.
  • Cut a small triangle out of the orange construction paper or foam and glue on as a beak.
  • Glue the two pompoms on the bottom of the egg as feet.
  • Cut the red pipe cleaner into three pieces. Bend each into a loop and stick the ends into the top of the egg.
  • To make the wings, start by taking a yellow pipe cleaner and bending one end into a 2 inch loop. Wrap to secure (see wing picture step1).
  • Next, wrap the remainder of the pipe cleaner around so that it makes a second layer inside the first loop (see wing picture step 2).
  • Finally wrap the rest of the pipe cleaner around so that it makes a third and final layer inside the second layer (see wing picture step 3).
  • Insert the finished wing (see wing picture 4) into the side of the egg.
  • Repeat these steps to make the wing for the other side of the egg.
