Here a Chick, There a Chick!

I made this adorable craft last spring and decided to move it to my new blog to keep things together.  My sister and I made this precious baby chick out of toilet paper rolls.  If you can't get excited about toilet paper rolls, then this post is probably not for you.

I started by painting a toilet paper roll yellow.  Then, I cut it into two pieces, one smaller than the other by about half.  I added google eyes (which I am obsessed with), and a construction paper beak.  I attached yellow feathers to its back.

For the nest, I cut most of the top off a small brown paper sack.  I added a jagged edge across the top.  After filling the sack with green Easter grass, I taped the chick into its nest.  Adorable!
