We are super excited to be taking part in Maggy Woodley’s Australian blog tour promoting her new book, Red Ted Art: Cute and Easy Crafts for Kids (available from book stores or from Fishpond with free shipping! (http://www.fishpond.co.uk/Books/Red-Ted-Art-Margarita-Woodley/9780224095556).
Maggy has generously provided Paging Fun Mums readers with this unique opportunity to recreate this cute craft idea at home!
Go to Red Ted Art to see other blogs taking part on this tour.
To make these chicks you will need:
Coloured Tissue Paper
Craft foam (or felt or cardboard)
The first step is to ‘blow out your eggs’ (ie remove all of the eggs insides so your craft does not go rotten!). Here’s a link on how to do that here.
The next step is to cut the tissue paper into strips & squares. I divided up the three colours into three separate containers for the kids.
Then brush your egg with the glue & stick on your tissue paper. You will need to do a few layers…we did three : )
Then cut the beaks & combs from the foam. I pre cut these for my kids as they are not quite ‘scissor savvy’ yet.
Then using the glue, add the beaks & combs. Then add your googly eyes & feathers to complete you gorgeous little chicks!
My kids LOVE their new little friends…Master L wants to take his to bed with him tonight lol!
These would make a great craft at Easter time too!
