Is it too early to share our first Easter craft of the year? I know we still have our Valentine’s Day cards up around the house but the children had an Inset Day today so we made a start on our Easter crafting.

How to make polystyrene Easter chicks
First we tore our yellow tissue paper into pieces and glued it to the polystyrene shapes using the Bostik Fine and Wide Glu Pen. The glue pen is double-ended which makes it perfect for all kinds of craft projects. My daughter used the wide end to cover the egg shape with glue. It was a little messy but she didn’t mind and the glue washed off easily.
She covered three egg shapes with glue and we left them to dry for a few hours (they were quite sticky!).
Whilst they were drying out she drew feet and beaks for her little chicks on the orange craft foam which I then cut out for her.
When the chicks had dried she added the foam beak, foam feet and googly eyes using Bostik Glu Dots. We were sent some fun craft supplies which included feathers, shredded paper and eggs which were perfect for creating a little next for her chicks.
Disclosure – we were sent some of these craft supplies as we are Bostik Family Craft Bloggers
