Our fun with spring chicks continues, and Veronika has loved exploring the different materials from our craft bin as we make each version to mark the season. This time, she got to have fun with tissue paper!
First, you’ll need lots of squares of yellow tissue paper. You can invite your child to help rip up pieces, or preschoolers can use the opportunity for scissor practice instead. Next, I traced a circle onto white paper and cut out, and then Veronika helped smear it with a glue stick.
All she had to do was cover it with tissue paper. This is such a forgiving material for toddlers, since it takes very little glue to make tissue paper stick. In short order, we had a fluffy yellow chick.
To make the legs, twist a small piece of orange pipe cleaner around a larger piece of pipe cleaner, such that it forms three toes.
All that was left to do was to glue down two wiggle eyes and an orange paper beak.
