Toilet Paper Tube Chick

{A joint effort by Mama and Mia, age 4}
  • toilet paper tube
  • yellow paint
  • paint brush
  • googly eyes
  • orange construction paper
  • yellow feathers
  • scissors
  • glue
  • push pin (optional)
  1. Paint the outside of a toilet paper tube yellow. You can also paint the top part of the inside if you want it to look more finished. Allow paint to dry.
  2. Glue on two googly eyes.
  3. Cut a beak and glue beneath the eyes.
  4. Use a push pin or scissors to make small holes on either side of the tube and one in the back.
  5. Insert a yellow feather into each hole to make wings and a tail.
  6. Cut two feet (I made ours like three-pointed crowns) from orange construction paper and glue to the bottom of the toilet paper tube.
  7. Once all glue is dry you can use your chick as a finger puppet or else display it on a table or shelf.
