Pompom Chick

Easter Chick in an egg

What came first the chicken or the egg?

For this craft you will need;

  • One-half plastic egg 
  • Yellow yarn (Bernat Happy yarn in the color daisy) 
  • A scraps of black paper 
  • Scraps of yellow or orange paper 

Bernat Happy Yarn in Daisy is no longer available. You can use another brand of fluffy yarn or standard yarn to make the pompom.

yarn for chick

To make the soft fuzzy chick you will need to make a pompom. Cut a 6-inch piece of yarn and set aside.

wrap the yarn

Take the end of the yarn that is still on the ball wrap it around three of your fingers. Continue to wrap the yarn about thirty times. You might need to wrap more or less to make a fluffy pompom.  

Slip the yarn off your fingers. Take the 6-inch piece of yarn and tie it around the center of the yarn bundle. Pull it tight and make a knot.

cut loops

Cut the folded yarn. Trim so that the pieces of yarn are the same length, but don’t trim too much. You want your pompom to be big and round.

fluff with your hands

Rub the pompom in your hands. Baby chickens are cute and plump looking.

Place your pompom in half of a plastic egg.

cut eyes and beak

Cut circles from black paper for the eyes. Or you could use small wiggly eyes.

Make a beak out of yellow or orange paper. To make the beak cut a small square of paper. Hold the paper so that it is a diamond shape. Fold the two ends together. You should have a triangular shape.

Glue the beak and eyes to the pompom.

Do you have preschoolers who would like to make a chick? Instead of making your pompom, buy a large yellow one. Your child can then glue the pieces together.

You can also make an adult chicken using a three oz. cup.
