Three Little Chicks: A Pastels Tutorial

One, two, three – EASY! Here is a sweet and simple spring time pastel for you and your chicks to enjoy.

Nana chose regular, green construction paper and cut it in half. Then three colors: yellow, orange and black.

Make a nice, fluffy, round chick body. Use your finger and blend it so your chick looks all cuddly. A little, soft head too.

Add legs with orange. A beak too.

Then one little black eye.

That will do! Now, feel free to make as many chicks as you like.

Maybe even a Peeps cake for you and your little peeps :) Click Sunflower Peeps Cake.

A Simple Start in Chalk Pastels As requested, we put our chalk pastel tutorials in ebook form for you – including video tutorials! Easy to view on a computer, iPad or Kindle. Easy to print. More details here: A Simple Start in Chalk Pastels. Just add paper and chalk pastels!

A note on pastels: Pastels are an easy, forgiving medium. Fun for children and adults alike! Details on the pastels and paper we use, how and where to purchase, and links to all of Nana’s other pastel lessons are all contained in the post Pastels plus links to tutorials. A simple set is very affordable.

The practical aspects of a mess: Pastels are blessedly messy. We always have baby wipes close by to wipe hands. We wear something we don’t mind getting stained or don a smock.

About Hodgepodgemom

Tricia faces a daily dose of chaos homeschooling five children. The biggest lesson she’s learned? At the end of the day – when the dishes are put away and the children are tucked in bed – truly what matters is each child’s relationship with the Lord. Raising children is a God-given privilege and, folks, the time is short.


  1. We might just do this one this week!

  2. That’s adorable! And it looks doable. I just need to get some pastels. I used to love those in art class. That cake looks sweet, too. The bunnies look great!

    Hmm, I might have to try that!
