These cute little chicks are the perfect little addition to any Easter basket, bonnet or table. Plus they are so simple to make.

What You Need:

  • A pine cone
  • Yellow paint (if you don’t have paint see our DIY paint recipes here)
  • Orange foam or stiff card (or you could colour in plain card)
  • Googley eyes (or a permanent marker pen)
  • Yellow plasticine or playdough (see our DIY recipe here)
  • A small piece of tin foil (around 4x4cm)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pencil

How To Make:

  1. Start by painting your pine cone yellow and set aside to dry. This will form the body of the chick.
  2. Next on your orange card draw your feet making sure that they have a space in the middle to glue the body to. Cut out.
  3. Now on your orange card, draw a small triangle for the beak and cut out.
  4. Scrunch up your tin foil into a small ball
  5. Using a small amount of playdough create a flattened circle on the table and place the foil ball in the middle.
  6. Wrap the playdough around the foil until the foil is covered and the ball is smooth. This will form the head.
  7. Glue the beak to the centre of the ball and then add the eyes.
  8. Once the pine cone body is dry, glue the pine cone (tilted at an angle), to the orange cardboard feet.
  9. Finally glue the head to the top of the body.
  10. Leave to dry.
  11. Ta dah! A cute little Easter chick

Please note we found you do need a good blob of glue and sometimes a spare pair of hands to help glue the body parts together.

We also recommend wearing aprons or old clothes for any crafts.
