Toilet Paper Roll Chicks

For a quick craft, I decided to make toilet paper roll chicks with my two littles. 


Materials 

  • paint brushes 

Steps 

1. Gather all materials.
2. Paint toilet paper rolls yellow.  My son and daughter used both paint brushes and finger painted.

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

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



5. If you wish, you can attach construction paper feet.
