Pine Cone Chick Craft

My sister Carolyn made this cute little chick with her kindergarten class for years.

What you'll need:
* Pinecone
* Yellow paint
* Cotton balls
* Orange craft foam
* Yellow feathers
* Googly eyes
* Easter grass
* Glue

To make, find pine cones that stand well, paint them yellow, and let dry.  Pull cotton balls into thinner strands and stuff cotton into pine cone gaps.  Using the orange craft foam, cut feet for your chick.  Attach Easter grass to bottom of feet and then attach feet to pine cone.  This chick also has rounded foam rectangles under the feathered wings which helps the feathers stand out more.  Attach feathers and eyes with glue.
