Classified: Easy and is great for practicing fine motor skills such as cutting with scissors and for following directions.
What you need:
- Glue stick
- Yellow and orange construction paper
- Decorative scrapbook scissors
- Kid scissors
|Parts your child/student will need to cut out.|
What you do:
1. Using a ruler, draw two strips for your child/student to cut on yellow construction. Strip one should be about 2.5" wide by 7" long; strip two should be about 2.5" wide by 5" long. These sizes are approximate.
2. Draw two wings and one tail (triangles) for the chick's body on the same piece of yellow construction paper.
3. On the orange sheet of construction paper, draw a beak (triangle) and feet that look like this:
4. Have your child cut out the parts on the yellow construction paper with the decorative scrapbook scissors and use regular kid scissors for the orange chick body parts. Set aside all the body parts.
5. Fold the end of the orange beak to produce a "flap" and glue onto the center of the small yellow strip. Have your child draw a face accordingly.
6. Your child should then glue the ends of the wings and adhere it to the center of the body yellow strip of construction paper.
7. Roll each pieces (head and body) and have your child glue together the ends.
8. Your child (or student) should then glue the chick's head to the body. Please Note: don't fight gravity! Let the joined part of the paper become the bottom portion of the chick's body.
9. Glue the feet and tail to the chick's body.
