chick easter egg

Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Finally, we’ve got the answer: You’ll need only one of our craft eggs to create this fluffy, adorable chick. Just add a little paint and a few feathers, it’s so easy and so, so cute!
Step 1
Begin by mixing the white and Dandelion paints together on a paper plate. This will make the pretty, spring-like shade of yellow you see in our project image. Paint the entire egg, then let it dry.
 
TIP: You might need to touch up a few places after your first coat, so check carefully. Add a little more paint if you think it’s necessary.
Step 2
Use a black paint pen to draw your little chick’s beak and eyes. You can copy the way we did it, or make your own sweet little face. Let the black paint dry. 
Step 3
With the pink paint pen, draw rosy cheeks on your chick. Next, use the red paint pen to color in the beak. Let this paint dry. 
Step 4
Finally, it’s time for the feathers. Glue a teeny feather onto the top of the egg to make a crest. Then glue more feathers on either side of the egg to make wings. Now, your chick’s ready for an Easter adventure!
