What is interesting about a chicken?

Chickens have great memories! They can remember nearly every type of experience and are great and solving memory puzzles, especially if a treat is involved.

1. Open the Chicken Activity envelope and pull out all the materials, including googly eyes and a glue stick that comes in the kit!

3. Place the white plate in front of you, face up. Let’s turn this into a cracked egg! Grab some scissors and cut the plate in half in a zig-zag line for your kiddo. TIP: Make this a learning experience! Imagine an invisible line in the middle of the plate. Draw a series of dots above and below that invisible line. Have your child connect the dots by drawing a line up to one dot and down to the other!

4. Once you’ve cut the plate, flip it over! This will cover up your drawing lines and the egg will become 3D. Bring the yellow plate towards you. Glue one of the white pieces along the bottom of the yellow plate.

5. Time to glue on some details! Glue the googly eyes in the yellow area. Fold the orange beak in half (orange sides touching); glue one backside of the beak to the yellow area. And last, but not least, glue the wings on the sides of the chick from underneath.

6. Let’s add the top part of the egg, like a hat! If you are having difficulty gluing this part down - don’t worry, you have a mini tape dispenser in your kit too! Curl a piece of tape underneath the egg cap and glue it on top of the chicken at an angle.
