Start by putting some yellow paint onto your plate, you’ll want a nice flat surface to work with for this and the plate is perfect for giving a nice big surface for your sponge.
Next up dab your shower sponge into the paint, your sponge will hold a lot of paint so you’ll want to use card for this craft rather than paper or it will get very soggy very quickly!
Dab your paint onto your card, one dab will make you a little chick while moving it around the paper more will give you a bigger one, just make sure you keep to a circular shape!
Once you have painted your chicks bodies cut out beaks and feet from orange card and eyes from black card. I also cut circles out of pink paper for my chick's cheeks. If you are making this craft with a preschooler or toddler you are likely to want to want to do the cutting for them (especially the feet) but younger kids can cut out the triangle for the beak especially with some help. For our chick crafts I had to help with the cutting as my daughter wanted ‘girl eyes’ for her chick rather than the circles I originally suggested and I have to admit they do look cuter. I've also suggested white card and a pen in the materials list as you could cut out white circles and draw in dots for eyes instead, this would also be a good way to use up any scrap paper or card. The picture I've shared here is the one that my preschool age daughter made.
Once your paint is dry stick all of the chicks features on with glue.
Instead of cutting out paper for your chick's eyes you could wait until the paint is dry and draw these on with a black marker pen.
