A Story and a Footprint Chick

"There was an old lady that swallowed a chick, I don't know why she swallowed a chick, but she didn't get sick." 

We recently borrowed There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Chick by Lucille Colandro from our library. This is the Easter version of  Colandro's "Old Lady" series. It is a silly book with repetitive rhyming text and funny illustration. It was a fun read. 


After reading this we made our own silly chick. We made a footprint chick. I painted Alex's foot yellow and he stepped on to a piece of construction paper. 


When the footprint had dried Alex glued on some googly eyes, two yellow feathers for wings and a orange beak that I had cut out for him out paper. 


Our silly chick was finished!

  2. I bet you could decorate a tissue box to look like the lady and have the opening be her mouth. Cute chick!
