Adult Supervision Needed

How to Make

  1. Cut the feet off of a mini fluffy chick, then push it into a small balloon, then blow the balloon up and tie it in a knot.
  2. Pour some PVA glue into a bowl, add a little water and then mix together.
  3. Cut some purple embroidery thread into 3 pieces. Dip one piece into the glue mixture, keeping the ends separate so that it doesn't get tangled.
  4. Wrap the thread around the balloon. Then dip the next piece in the glue and repeat until all of the thread is gone.
  5. Make sure there aren't any gaps big enough for the chick to fall out. Leave to dry over night.
  6. Once the string is completely dry, carefully pop the balloon and pull it out of the string egg, leaving the chick inside.
  7. Tie a piece of ribbon through the egg into a loop for it to hang from.

Top Tip

Gently push the balloon inwards away from the string before popping to prevent the egg from collapsing.
