With the remaining yellow pipe cleaner, cut in half and shape into wings. Glue into place.

While you are here, I’ve put together a variety of activities you can complete if your child is learning about chicks. In fact, here’s a fun chick hatching video to show the kids before or after making this craft to help supplement this activity.
This video below is pretty entertaining as well. It demonstrates how baby chickens grow.
We hope you enjoyed this craft as much as we did!
