Download the chick template, print, and cut out the pieces you need.
Take the eggshell and glue it to the bottom of the chick’s body.
Position the feet in the middle of the eggshell so it looks like they’re popping out of the egg. Glue them in place.
Place the beak in the middle of the head, towards the bottom, and glue it down.
Glue the eyes just above the beak, one on each side.
Finish off by drawing on small eyebrows just above the eyes.
Isn’t this just the cutest?! We think your kids are going to love it!
