I had to show you the easter chicks my son made for his school competiton. He did nearly all of it himself all i did was boil the eggs and cut out the beaks for him. Sadly he didn't win anything as the other creations were amazing but he had fun doing them and at least he did make them unlike the winning ones which were most likely done by the parents.
I bought some colour tablets and he dyed the eggs. Then when they were dry he stuck on google eyes, beaks, 2 feathers on each for wings and pipe cleaners for feet.
