Decorate a large pompom into an adorable chick. Place it into an eggshell made out of egg carton cups for a really cute Easter chick décor.
Cut one cup or section from a cardboard egg carton. Cut the lip in a zigzag pattern to simulate a hatched egg. This piece will be the bottom part of the chick's egg.
Cut another cup or section from the egg carton. Trim it a lot shorter than the first one, then similarly cut the lip in a zigzag pattern. This piece will be the top part of the chick's egg.
Paint the outside of the egg carton cups with white tempera or poster paint. Besides white, you can also use pastel colors of paint like baby pink or light blue.
Prepare a large yellow pom pom (1.5" or 2" diameter) to make into a fluffy chick. Glue a pair of wiggle eyes on the pom pom.
Make a beak by cutting out 1 or 2 small triangles out of orange craft foam, felt, or construction paper. There are two 2 ways to attach the beak:
Glue the chick inside the bottom egg piece (the taller egg carton cup).
Create wings by gluing a pair of yellow feathers at the sides of the chick.
If you think the feathers are too long, trim them at the base before gluing them on.
Finally, glue the top egg piece (the shorter egg carton cup) on the chick's head.
