Pompom Easter Chick Craft

Jasmine asked me this morning if she could “make a chick out of wool?”

Pompom chicks.. perfect Spring/Easter craft! All we managed to do today was make the pompoms and this evening I have cut out all the “chick” bits so the kids will get to make theirs tomorrow.

Here is what to do.

You will need:

  • Wool
  • Cardboard
  • Googly eyes
  • Felt
  • Craft feathers

Start by cutting out 4 circles from your card, two approx 8cm and two 5cm. Cut a 10p sized hole in the middle of your cut circles. These are the templates for the pompoms.

Place the two larger discs together and wind wool around until the hole is almost full. Cut through the wool around the outer edge and tie inbetween the cardboard discs with a length of wool. Pull the cardboard discs away. Repeat for the smaller discs.

Join the pompoms together with more wool tied first to the larger pompom and then round the smaller one.

Cut a beak and feet shapes from felt and glue these on to your chick, along with googly eyes. Glue a couple of feathers in each side for wings.
