How to do itAttached file: Download
Cover a 7 cm polystyrene egg with Foam Clay.
Print out the templates which are available as a separate PDF file for this idea. Cut out a beak, a cockscomb and feet from card, using the templates whilst the egg is drying.
Attach the cut-out card parts and two small polystyrene balls for the eyes using small blobs of fresh Foam Clay.
Make a hole downwards in the back of the hen and insert the feather into the hole.
Roll two small black Foam Clay balls and press them onto the eyes.
You can make small chicks using 5 cm polystyrene eggs and 1.5cm diameter polystyrene balls for the eyes.
