  5. To start the body of the chick, thread both ends of the elastic through 4 yellow beads.

  7. Repeat step 6 on the other side of the chick to create 2 wings.
  8. Finish the rest of the chick’s body by threading both ends of the elastic through 4 yellow beads and then thread both ends of elastic through 3 yellow beads.
