Chicks in a Basket

Chicks in a Basket

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Putting all your eggs in one basket is a bad idea, of course, but put all these chicks in a basket, and you've got one very cute centerpiece.


  • Kitchen shears
  • Small basket
  • Yellow work glove
  • Craft glue
  • Scissors
  • Felt
  • Small googly eyes
  • Easter grass
  • Ribbon or flat braid (optional)


Use the kitchen shears to cut a whole in the bottom of your basket that's big enough for your child to fit her hand through.

Stick the work glove up through the hole, leaving the cuff out.

Secure the cuff to the bottom with craft glue.

Tuck the thumb of the glove into the basket and glue it out of sight.

Cut four small triangular beaks out of the orange felt and four small combs out of the yellow felt.

Glue the combs to the tops of each gloved finger; glue the beaks -- slightly curved -- onto each "face."

Complete each face by gluing on a pair of googly eyes.

Add a small handful of Easter grass around the chicks in the basket.


If desired, decorate the handle by wrapping it with pretty ribbon or braid.
