21-day Eggciting Adventure: Day 9
Welcome Back Goat Life Farmer's!!
Today let's do a craft!!! Maybe some parents like wine and have been saving the corks since we have so much free time :) I found this fun craft on pintrest!
Such a darling little Easter and spring craft! Be sure to check out more of our Easter ideas at Our Kid Things!
If you don't have pipe cleaners be creative! use ribbon or craft paper, draw the eyes! Just have fun and be creative!
Make sure to show us your craft!!!
FUZZY PIPE CLEANER AND CORK CHICK CRAFT
- Wine corks
- Yellow pipe cleaners
- Orange construction paper
- Small googly eyes
- School glue
You will need 3 yellow pipe cleaners per chick.
Bend one yellow pipe cleaner about ⅓ of the way into the pipe cleaner. Make 3 small bends total, so it’s like an extended M. Make sure you leave the end of the pipe cleaner a bit longer than the other folds.
Take the end of the pipe cleaner, bunch the folds together, and wrap the end of the pipe cleaner around the remaining length of pipe cleaner to secure for the wing.
Position the wing shape on the edge of the cork and begin to wrap the rest of the pipe cleaner around the cork. Tuck the end of the pipe cleaner under the wrapped pipe cleaner to secure in place. Do the same with a pipe cleaner on the other side for the other wing.
Take one more pipe cleaner, tuck an end under the already wrapped pipe cleaner and wrap around as much of the remaining cork as possible. Again, tuck the last end under the already wrapped pipe cleaner to secure. Position and separate pipe cleaner as needed.
Glue on two small googly eyes. Cut a small square of orange paper. Fold into a triangle. Trim to a beak shape. Glue in place.
Lily demonstrated how she did her craft!
