Cinderella’s Tabletop Easter Chicks



Like Cinderella, no doubt your child will consider the task of rounding up a collection of these chubby felt chicks pure pleasure.

What you’ll need

  • Chick templates
  • Scissors
  • Straight pins (for securing the template pieces to the felt)
  • Felt (yellow and orange)
  • Orange pipe cleaners
  • Hot glue gun
  • Googly eyes

How to make it

  • Print the template and cut out the pieces. Use the cutouts as patterns to cut out two felt body shapes and a pair of wings for each chick.

  • Step 2a

    To create the chick's legs, bend a 7-inch pipe cleaner length in half and twist the ends together a few times just below the bend.

  • Step 2c

    For feet, twist a 2-inch pipe cleaner length around the bottom of each leg, as shown.

  • Step 3

    Cut out a small triangular beak from the orange felt and glue it to the edge of one of the body pieces.

  • Step 4

    Glue the top of the legs to the bottom of the body.

  • Step 5

    Glue the second body piece on top of the first one, matching up all the edges. Attach a wing to each side of the body, applying glue along one edge of the felt, as shown.
