Cute Chicks

Of course, another popular one at Easter is the spring-chicken. While Easter isn't in spring over here, they're still super cute and they're the reason for all those chocolate Easter eggs you're chomping on!

You can create some wine cork chicks, which could also be made with any other small round cylinder with a flat surface that you don't mind getting paint on:
