After saving this idea from a Handmade Magazine for over a year.. we finally made some of these cute little fella's
Here are the ones the girls made themselves
8 year old
2 year old (he is using his 'angry eyes')
and sadly some ended up like this
Basically these were styrofoam eggs painted yellow with orange paper (should be that craft foam stuff) wings and feet glued on. Add googly eyes (getting some good mileage out of that packet this week)and stick a feather in its head - voila done.
Straight to the mantle for display :)
and the girls are excited as there are some real little chicky's at grandma's waiting for them to visit :)
