Fluffy Pinecone Chick

Materials:
  • large, fat pinecone
  • pencil
  • yellow paint/brush
  • fiberfill
  • white, orange, blue and white felt scraps
  • green construction paper
  • Easter grass
  • glue/scissors

Instructions:
  1. Paint the pinecone yellow and let it dry.
  2. Wrap the pinecone in a thin layer of fiberfill, using the pencil to poke the fluff between the scales of the pinecone.
  3. Cut wings, a beak, and eyes from felt scraps and glue them on the pinecone body.
  4. Cut a 4-inch circle out of green construction paper.  Glue Easter grass on top of the circle. Then glue the pinecone chick to the middle of the grass.
While we were looking for resources to offer along with this project, we found this EXACT project on another website -childfun.com.  The instructions we had were in our teacher archives. The original source of this activity is unknown.
