Playgroup: From Head to Toe

We read the book From Head to Toe by Eric Carle

from head to toe

Afterward we created an Easter craft we found on the All Kids Network:

peek-a-boo-chick-open

 

What you’ll need:

  • Peek-a-boo Chick Template
  • Yellow, orange, and white craft foam
  • 2 googly eyes
  • Decorations for the egg (we used craft foam flowers)
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Brass fastener
  • Optional: magnet

How to make your Peek-A-Boo Chick:

  • Print our Peek-a-boo Chick template, cut the pieces out and trace them onto craft foam. Cut out your craft foam pieces.
  • Overlap the two pieces of the egg slightly so that when closed the two pieces of the egg make a nice egg shape.
  • Push the brass fastener through the two pieces on the side of the egg to hold them together. Don’t fasten it too tightly though so that your egg can still be opened and closed without cutting through the craft foam.
  • Glue the yellow chick piece to the back of the bottom half of the egg. Make sure when you do this that you glue it so that the top of the chick is covered by the top half of the egg when it is closed and doesn’t stick out.
  • Glue two googly eyes onto the chick.
  • Glue the beak onto the chick.
  • Glue your decorations onto the egg.

About welcomebabysl

Welcoming a newborn baby into your home is an overwhelming experience. Like other first-time parents, you are probably experiencing feelings of excitement and anticipation, as well as anxiety and uncertainty. The next few years of your child's life are very critical, and parents play a vital role in promoting healthy growth and development. Because children don’t come with a user’s manual, parents are left to follow their instincts, rely on previous knowledge, research the answers or ask family and friends for advice. It is definitely a learning experience, but not one that has to be done alone. Welcome Baby offers several different levels of support to first-time parents.
