Here a chick, there a chick… {Gigi’s Joy Photography}

One morning, shortly after our baby chicks arrived, I asked the children to help me for just a minute. They came reluctantly, since this is usually followed by a request to put away laundry or unload the dishwasher. When they saw what I was doing, they dissolved into giggles and were happy to help corral the chicken.

The next day, I had more plans. Once we got the big kids off to school, the little guy and I took a few of the chicks outside.

My little buddy kept giving the chick pieces of chalk, but he wasn’t interested in drawing with us (probably due to his lack of hands).

We made a prehistoric scene for one of the chicks to play in.

(And yes, we are aware that all of these dinosaurs would not have existed together – this is where artistic license comes in.)

And then we got out the Angry Bird game pieces. My assistant took over the creative direction.

Prepping the Talent for the scene

The Director became a little more emphatic in his instructions.

The Stand-off. (The chick was really getting into his Angry Bird character.)

After a little break and a little negotiation on terms and conditions, we were able to get it right:

Our Not-So-Angry Bird

*No animals were harmed in the making of these images, though there was one very sad little boy when told that it was time for his nap.*
