For a quick craft, I decided to make toilet paper roll chicks with my two littles. I think these make a great craft for the spring season, learning about chickens, or Easter time.

2. Paint toilet paper rolls yellow.  My son and daughter used both paint brushes and finger painting.

3. While the paint is drying, cut out the beaks. Just small triangles will do.

4. After your paint has dried, glue on googly eyes, the beak, and feathers.
