  • First off, you’ll want to cut the top section of the plates off leaving a straight line and most of the bottom in tact
  • Cut (2) 1 in. inch wide strips from the orange paper (about 6 inches in length) and accordian fold them
  • Cut a 2×2 inch square from the orange and fold it at a diagonal for the beak 
  • Then flip the plates around and on a paint safe surface paint them with your sponge and yellow paint
  • Let the paint dry. If you didn’t spread it on too thick – it should dry in a few minutes

  • Now, turn the plates toward each other with the yellow part on the outside and start stapling around the outer edge
  • *Leave a space at the top unstaple for the ribbon and don’t forget to place your chicken legs into the bottom as you go around the plate and secure those in between the plates with a staple

  • If you haven’t already…Trace the kids hands onto the yellow cardstock and cut those out
  • You can also decorate the face with the beak and button eyes
  • Staple those onto the plate – close to the top. I made sure that the thumb portion of the hand was facing down to resemble a wing
  • Add your ribbon at the top edges with the stapler
