Chickie can be perched in an Easter basket, or used as favors for an Easter party, or added next to place settings on a Spring table.

How to Make Chickie Money Hugs.

1. On a piece of paper, draw a circle that is about 4 1/4 inches in diameter.

Elongate the top of the circle as shown to create the chick’s head.

Cut it out.

2. If you are going to make more than one, trace the chick shape onto cereal cardboard for a template and cut it out.

3. Trace the chick shape onto yellow craft foam.

Cut it out.

4. On the chick, draw a curved line about 1/3 of the way down from the top.

Draw another curved line about 5/8 of an inch below the first line.

This will be the arms / wings to hold the money.

5. Using the craft knife, cut a slit along the top curved line, in the center, a little wider than the folded dollar bill.

Cut a slit in the lower line, matching where the slit is in the upper curved line.

6. Draw the feathers / fingers on the chick’s arms.

7. Draw foot and beak shapes on the orange craft foam. Cut them out.

8. Cut out 2 largish circles from the black craft foam for the chick’s eyes.

9. Glue the beak and eyes on the chick, fairly high up, so there is room for the dollar bill.

Let Dry.

10. Turn the chick over and glue the feather and feet onto the back of the chick, as shown. Let dry.

12. Slip the money into the slits of the chick’s arms.

Instead of money you could add a stick of chewing gum or an encouraging note.

Tips.

You can make the chick a little narrower, but I thought it was cute to make him nice and round.

You can use any denomination of money instead of a dollar bill.
