Method
Make a small ball out of air drying clay or plasticine modelling clay to make the body of your chick.
Add some white PVA glue to the back of the googly eyes then press into the clay.
Cut out a diamond shape for the beak out of foam craft sheet (or coloured card). Fold the diamond in half and apply white PVA glue to the bottom half of the diamond. Press the bottom half of the diamond into the clay to stick on the beak.



Poke feathers into each side of the clay to make wings.

To create the nest, stuff shredded paper or straw into a tub. If you have a paper shredder you could have fun shredding the paper together (with plenty of supervision).

Add your little chick to its nest. If you're using air drying clay, leave for around 24 hours to dry fully.
