Creating crafts is one of the ways of understanding the world and understanding the nature of things. Yesterday we did a Mother Hen and chicks, that had just hatched from eggs, my son has done several independent discoveries and was pleased with the result.
It is good, when you can often be with children in nature, to see the life of animals and birds, living in the wild. I am sure that the children, living in the village, from an early age understand the questions how the chicks and the eggs appear. However, children, who live in the cities, see eggs and chicks only on television and plates, but that’s another sad story…

For the base of Mother Hen you cut out an oval of white cardboard, (by the way, you can teach children what is the “oval” and its special characteristics). Cut out feet and triangular beak of yellow paper. Draw the child’s hand on orange or brown paper and cut out – it will be a chicken comb.
