How to make a baby chick using popsicle sticks

Arts and crafts are without doubt one of the best way for children to learn and grow in a creative and fun way. Not only does it develop their fine motor skills, it also helps to regulate their emotions and demonstrate self control and patience. As a mom, I am very happy that smarties love crafts and they are always making something mainly out of recycled materials that we have collected at home. Yes, our home has a “junk” corner where we collect all the recycled materials for “future use”.

This week, we are going to make a baby chick using popsicle sticks. It’s a very simple craft where preschoolers can do it on their own. Well, maybe the feet may need a little help. Here are the materials required:
– 6-7 popsicle sticks
– pipe cleaners
– googly eyes
– poster colour of your choice
– feather
– coloured paper

Step 1:
Cut 1 of the popsicle sticks into half and glue the other 5 popsicle sticks onto the cut up popsicle stick as shown below.

Step 2:
After it dries, have your child paint it with the colour of their choice (creativity is encourage here). Let your child choose whatever colour he/she likes and ask why.

Step 3:
Choose the goggly eyes of your choice and stick it on the assembled popsicle sticks. Cut a little triangle out of the coloured paper to make the beak and feather for its hair.

Step 4:
Last but not least, use the pipe cleaners to make its feet.

Step 5:
Tadaa! It’s all done now! Easy peasy, isn’t it?
