Roll lots of brown pieces of card into cylinders (use a kitchen roll tube to help you). Or paint lots of kitchen roll tubes brown.
Stick the brown tubes around the edges of a large A2 piece of blue card.
Cut smaller pieces off the tubes and stick them onto the blue card to make ledges in the coup for the chicks to sit on.
Cover the tubes in glue and sprinkle shredded yellow paper onto them for straw.
For the roof: cut two long rectangles from heavy card. Stick together at right angles and cover in red paper. Stick to the top of the blue card.
To make the chicks: cut six long strips of yellow paper. Bend them in half and staple the edges. Stick three to each side of a yellow plate for the wings.
Draw and cut out a foot shape from orange card and cut out x2. Fold a piece of orange paper in half and draw a triangle on the bend. Cut this out for the beak. Stick the feet and beak to the plate along with some googly eyes and some feathers on the head.
For the mother hen: make the tail in the same way. Fold a piece of orange and yellow paper in half. Draw a wing shape along the fold and cut out. Draw and cut out a beak, feet and comb from coloured card. Stick the feet to two pipe cleaners to make legs. Stick the wings, legs, beak, and comb to the hen. Stick a googly eye and feathers to the tail.
