Firstly, grab yourself a slice of cheese (I used tasty cheese) and a glass. Use the glass as a cutter to cut a circle from your cheese. Put it on your plate.
Next, take a strawberry and cut off about 2-3mm or 1/8 inch from the very bottom (the non-green leafy end). With the piece that you cut off, cut that in half as shown. Place on your cheese as the two eyes.
Taking one of the thinner slices, use a knife to cut the base off, just below the centre "core" of the carrot (the inner ring). Next, use your knife to cut two upside down "v" shapes from the carrot along the edge that you just cut. Do not discard/eat all of these "v" shapes - you will need one.
Repeat again for the second thinner slice of carrot, and put them in place on your cheese as the feet.
Pop the "v" shape of carrot just below the strawberry eyes - this has just become the chick's beak.
Now take your thicker slice of carrot. Place it on your chopping board so that it stands up on the flat edge. Cut two slices as shown.
With the middle slice (the one that is flat both sides, not curved on side which the first slice would be), cut three lengths as shown. Place at the top of your slice of cheese for the tufts of feathers that chicks seem to have (in cartoon versions).
This one uses a cornthin for the body and sultanas for the eyes. The carrot instructions are the same as for the cheese chick.
How did you go? What did you use to make a chick with?
