When we lived in Tennessee, it would often rain on Easter Sunday. Like many families, indoor egg hunts were the order of the day...the MOST challenging and fun in my opinion... When I was 5, we moved to Tulsa, where we rarely had indoor hunts...because rain was scarce... so my mom began to hide our baskets in the house to start our day! A little sign was posted at the bottom of the stairs with arrows and symbols for each child to find their basket.
- Cut a Yellow the body piece, 5"x 1 1/2", Using a corner rounder, round off all 4 corners on the body piece.
- Punch out 3 large yellow ovals. Cut the Yellow ovals to make the wings and tail. Attach the wings to the inside of the front piece.
- Punch out 2 - 1/4" circles out of brown cardstock. Use mini glue dots to attach the CC eyes to the front.
- Punch 2 large ovals and 1 small oval from orange cardstock. Fold the small orange oval to make the beak and attach to the front under the eyes. Using scallop scissors, cut the top 1/3 off the ends of each large OO oval and attach to the bottom of the body.
- Place a Hershey Nugget in the center of the body piece, fold up the sides of the body and punch a hole in the top and tie with ribbon. *Option* I frayed the ribbon so it looked like hair.
- Attach the tail last (makes it easier to tie the ribbon)
- Layer 2 of the hearts together to make the toes of the feet. Attach to the bottom of the body.
