Chick Treat Bags
To make the chicks, use yellow and orange cardstock (instead of brown and white).
Freehand cut the beak, feet and crest (on top of the head) out of orange paper.
Use a hole punch to make two black eyes (or use googly eyes).
Follow the rest of the instructions above to cut, score, fold the body, attach features, and fill the treat bag inside.
