How to Make Peek A Boo Chick
Simply cut out your choice of egg and your chick. Get an idea for placement by opening your clothespin and holding it over your chick. You want its face to be able to peek through when open.
Only place glue on the bottom piece of the clothes pin and attach the chick to the back. This allows the top to open and shut without problems.
Now glue the bottom part of the egg shell to the bottom front of the clothespin, and the top part of the egg shell to the top front of the clothespin. Position it so it looks like the egg is closed when the clothes pin is closed.
When the glue is dry pinch your clothes pin to allow the egg to open and peek at the chick.
