STEP 2: Colour in!


Take your oil pastels and start colouring! Colour the cardboard using a chick's usual colours or your kid's favourite ones. It's all about getting creative. How cute would a bright pink chick look!

Once you're happy with the coloured cardboard, it's time for the messiest and funniest part of this craft! Using your fingertips,  blend the oil pastels until you like the result.
