Another cute Easter idea: use baby socks turned inside out to make cute little chick finger puppets. These would be a fun addition to your Easter baskets (they’d be super cute stretched over a candy-filled plastic egg), or just a fun activity for a rainy Spring day. They’d also be cute baby shower decorations, or a good addition to an Easter tree. [project: Better Homes & Gardens]

The project uses feather boa tufts, but you can also use yarn, or how about buying a little yellow furry stuffed animal at the dollar store and cutting it up to use for a cheaper alternative to the boa? For the eyes, you can use googly eyes or buttons if you don’t want to use black beads, or you can embroider them on.

Project Estimate:

  • Baby sock, a pair for $1
  • Black beads, googly eyes, or buttons, on hand or $1
  • Feather boa tufts or alternative, on hand or $1
  • Orange pipe cleaners, $1
  • Orange felt, on hand or $.25

Total cost: $1 and up
