    Little chocolate eggs or treats

Step 1

Carefully squeeze the toilet roll tube and make a snip with the scissors to create a triangle. This will be the beak.

Step 2

Cut 2 slits up from the bottom and fold upwards, repeat to create 2 feet. Cut the excess around the bottom of the tube.

Step 3

Fold the top of the tube down - so that the it closes the top (better for hiding things inside).

Step 4

Decorate with paint or crayons.

Step 5

Hide some sweets or chocolates inside, and place your chick in a good spot to be found on a treasure hunt!
