Easter cute chicks
This is a very easy Easter stamping/painting activity which shifts the focus momentarily away from chocolate. I LOVE those fluffy little chicks that pop up around Easter, and I wanted to try and make a painting that captured that fluffy texture.
I started with some coloured card, some orange and yellow paint, a small piece of sturdy plastic that will act as a stamper, and a black pen.
Start with a layer of orange lines stamped in the shape of your chick’s head and body. Try to face them roughly in the one direction, or your chick will look a bit windswept. Next add a layer of yellow stamps on top, sticking with the same direction.
Get hold of your orange paint again and scrape a small beak, and stamp some legs and feet. Don’t worry if they are not perfect, they are very expressive little creatures!
Once dry, draw a beady black eye onto your chick with a pen.
These could make great Easter cards, bunting, puppets, or an addition to that wild Easter bonnet! Chirp Chirp
