How to make kinder egg chicks
I don't know about you but we love Easter, not just the chocolate side of it (though, that is a very good part) we get out of our hibernation mode and get some much needed fresh air, enjoying the beginnings of spring. We visit family and friends and become even more creative! (not sure how that is possible but we are).
Easter time starts a whole hub of creativity, we've been collecting/hoarding all sorts of treasures including... the dreaded kinder egg cases! I think it's safe to say that we have now got enough to make a chick army! So we did! here's how...
For your army of Easter chicks:
You will need:
- The obligatory kinder egg case
- orange craft foam
- yellow craft foam
- wobbly eyes
- yellow feathers
- double sided tape/glue
- mini chocolate eggs
With your craft foam cut out feet shapes and beaks from the orange craft foam and then wing shapes out of the yellow craft foam.
With some double sided tape or glue stick the feet on to the bottom of the kinder egg case and the a beak on to the front of the case. (Like pictured below)
With the double sided tape or glue stick down the yellow craft foam wings on to the sides of the kinder egg case and also a feather to the back of the case creating a fluffy feathery tail.
Lastly stick on your wobbly eyes to your kinder egg chick army. Hopefully you have the peel back ones, if not use a small bit of double sided tape like we did!
You can place little eggs inside, they would make an ideal craft with the kids and then a great Easter game of a chick hunt and you get a mini egg inside! You could also try mini skittles! What else could you do with them? You will have to share your suggestions in the comments section.
We would love to know what you think of our creative ideas and if you have given them a go with your children please feel free to share them with us on social media,
