Animals in various textures

It is well known that touching different textures is important for children (and even more for the babies) to explore and discover their environment. In fact, touching different textures can even facilitate food diversification in children.

So with Minus, we created Easter characters using lots of different textures for Minusculette (6 months).

L'éclosion du poussin:


- Cardboard

- Compass (drawing tool)

- Cutter

- Quick glue (vinyl type)

- 2 eggshells (but depending on the size of the chicken little)

- Mortar and pestle

- Corn grains

- Pieces of black and orange paper

How to do it:

Step 1 - the chicken little:

1. In a cardboard, draw with a compass and cut two circles of different diameters to form the future chicken (keep the circles for step 2).

2. Glue the cutout cardboard to another cardboard.

3. Fill the chicken shape with glue.

4. Pour the corn grain on the glue

6. Cut two circles (the eyes) from black paper and a triangle (the beak) from orange paper. Glue them on the corn.

Step 2 - the broken eggshell:

1. On the cut circles, draw mountains that will form the broken shell of our little chicken. Cut them.

2. In the mortar, place eggshells and break them with a pestle.

3. Put glue on the cardboard.

4. Pour the broken eggshells on the glue.

Tips: varnish the whole for a better fixation
