Step 1: Copy the pattern sheet onto white card stock. Note: Card stock really does work best for this project.

Step 3: Glue the head to the body.
Step 4: Glue on the wings (one on top of the body, one underneath).
Step 6: Mix equal parts white glue and water. Have your students "paint" squares of yellow and orange tissue paper on the chick. Note: I have the chick on resting on wax paper. It helps protect the table.
Finally: Have your students use a hole punch and black construction paper to make an eye. Just lay it on the head. The wet glue water will help it adhere.
The wings and feet curl slightly as they dry. This makes each chick look like she is flapping her wings and running around. Each chick looks different and adorable.
