Easter chicks

We made Easter chicks yesterday. We've been making them for several years so this year I decided to mix it up and make them in springy pastels.

Don't you love how worn and faded this old Pyrex bowl is? I found it at Goodwill for 2 dollars.

These chicks are the ones we made the first year we made chicks. I did more of the work then because the girls were so small.

We made two baskets of chicks last year. One we gave to the neighbor boy and one we gave to our favorite manager at Dunn Bros because I always get free burlap coffee bean bags from her. I made the basket from an old burlap coffee bean bag. You can find my tutorial for the burlap basket at Suite101.

I still think these chicks rank high on the list of super-cute easy crafts. In fact, just this week, I found out that our neighbors and our friend at Dunn Bros. kept their baskets and chicks and are using them again this year.

You can find instructions for making these adorable chicks at Suite101.

I will be sharing this at loads of wonderful linky parties. Please check them out!! Linky parties are fun and their hosts are awesome bloggers.

    I was going to share this with Dianne to do with her girls but in your tutorial it does not tell how to color the eggs. I know that your tutorial shows using white eggs. Do you just use food coloring?

  2. Those are so adorable! I want to make them with my Sunday School Class! I LOVE THEM!

  3. Those are so cute for Easter! Come stop by my Favorite Things Friday party tomorrow if you would like to join in!

  4. How adorable and so whimsical! What a charming idea! Love it!


  5. Total cuteness. But I realize if I show my youngest girls (ages 11 and 7) that before long, we'll be eating eggs all the time in order to have enough to play with. :)

  6. These are adorable--I just passed the link on to my fellow preschool teachers. Thanks for sharing!
