Make one of the balls of clay into a cone shape by rolling it first into a fat sausage and then rolling one end to make it pointy. Make a hole in the end of the cone with a pencil and move the pencil around to make the hole bigger. Slap the cone on its bottom to make sure its flat. Divide the other ball of clay into 4 and roll each into a ball. Two of the balls are for wings, one is for the head and the beak and the last one is divided into 3 for the two feet and the tail feathers. Make the head into a ball and the beak into a triangle. Stick the beak on the head and pinch the head either side of the beak for the eye sockets. Dont forget to scratch and wet the surfaces that you are joining and wiggle the pieces into place to make sure they are stuck. Take a tiny piece of clay from each wing piece, roll them into balls for the eyes and stick them in place. Make the feet and tail pieces into triangles, squash the feet flat and stick at the sides towards the front. Stick on the tail at the back shaping to look like tail feathers. Make each of the wing pieces into squashed triangles and stick on at the sides. I used and extra piece of clay to make an Easter egg for the chick to hold. Photo shoot!
