Peep, Peep! Chirp, Chirp!

Easter is next weekend! It doesn't feel like it should be here yet but alas it is. Unfortunately Maddie and I have had very little chance to make any great Easter crafts but we did have an opportunity to break out some paint this week!

This project was based on one we did last year but on a bigger scale this time around. Madison was thrilled to practicing her tracing skills with a small plate before we started painting.

Once again we mixed a little bit of orange, yellow and white to get a nice fuzzy affect on the little chicks!


Madison went crazy with a chunk of sponge painting!


At the moment I am without cool crafty scissors so I went with a quick and simple squiggle effect for the chick wings.


Add a few googly eyes and a few scraps of orange paper and you have an adorable spring chick!

This turned out so cute! I have it bookmarked to give it a shot with my son this week!
