Spring is in the air……

I don’t know about you but I just love this time of year… we’ve been having a great time in my childminding service learning about baby animals and spring flowers.

Here is one activity that we have really enjoyed doing and want to share with you… making our own baby chick spoon puppets.


If you want to make a puppet too you will need the following:

  • A wooden spoon
  • Yellow paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Googly eyes x 2
  • Glue
  • Orange foam or card
  • Scissors
  • Yellow and orange feathers (we used 2 of each colour)
  • Apron

and you take the following steps:

  • Paint the wooden spoon yellow using the paint
  • Allow the paint to dry
  • Use the glue to stick both googly eyes onto the back of the spoon
  • Cut a small triangle out of the orange foam or card and stick in place as a beak
  • Turn the spoon over and stick on the feathers
  • Allow the glue to dry before letting your little one play with their new chick puppet

The perfect activity for Spring or Easter
