So, we designed a chick in a coop. Open the flap and peek inside. It is simple to make this card. Just fold a piece of paper in half lengthwise and cut a hole out of the middle. If you want to get extra crafty, decorate the front of the card with a chicken wire pattern.
To make the chick, hand draw or trace the little chick in the book.
We gave him dimensions, by cutting out each body part. This also gives little ones something to manipulate while they work on fine motor skills. Cut out a body, a wing, a beak, a comb, and an eye and let the littles place them where they see fit.
It is fun to see the chick through their eyes. They likely won't put it in "proper" order. That's okay! Make a memory, don't pressure them to make them do it as you see it.
