  2. Paint your background (sky and grass) around the traced shape which will become our main egg.

  3. Cut out a small circle of bubble wrap and paint it yellow (or whatever color you want your chick) stamp this into the center of the egg. you can add wings or legs now as well. Place to the side to dry.

  4. Take your egg shaped watercolor paper and a bunch of crate paper squares. paint water onto the watercolor paper and then place the crate paper in a design on top. Paint water on top of each crate paper as well. Place to the side to dry for 10 minutes.

  5. Bringing the now dried canvas, add any details to the painting (small hidden eggs or chicks in the background, birds in the sky, trees, etc.) as well as the googly eyes and painted beak to your bubble wrap chick.

  6. After 10+ minutes peel off the crate paper from the watercolor egg. It should leave a design of color on your egg. Poke a hole in the center of this egg and peel a small amount.

  7. Then glue ONLY the edges of this egg onto your canvas painting. Continue to peel back the paper from the whole to show the small chick inside!
