- 2 yellow chenille stems(pipe cleaners)

How to make this paper plate pom pom chick
Glue the pom poms to the paper plate. If using 3 shades of yellow as pictured, start with the wings first, then the breast area, and finally the top.
Cut one yellow chenille stem in half. Twist each half into bird feet. Glue into place.
With the remaining yellow chenille stem, cut in half and shape into wings. Glue into place.
Twist the orange chenille stem into a beak shape. Glue into place.
Once that is done, take and glue the wiggly eyes to each side of the beak.
Make certain that you let it dry all the way before the kids start playing with it or trying to hang it up on to showcase. Since you’re using quick-dry glue it shouldn’t take very long at all.
