Finally, use red and yellow pipe cleaners to make legs and small ridges. Shape your pipe cleaner and cut off the excess with scissors. Then make small holes using a needle or a snail pick (be careful when handling with children): 1 hole above each chick for the crest and two holes below each chick for the legs. Then slide the legs and ridges into these holes and make a small dot of transparent glue to fix them.
