Can you believe how quickly Easter is approaching this year! It always throws me off when it comes early.
We decided we needed to get started on our Easter and springtime crafts. We are so ready to move on from winter crafts to bright cheerful springtime crafts.
We started with this super easy Paper Plate Chick.
My kids love to visit our local farm store around Easter and see the baby chicks, ducks, and rabbits. Then I hear for few weeks after about how we need baby chicks. I admit they are really cute, but I don’t think the neighbors would appreciate the cuteness especially as they got older.
Paper Plate Chick Craft
- Paper plate
- Yellow paint
- Yellow feathers
- Orange paper
- Googly eyes
- Glue stick
This paper plate chick is really easy to make. With a little help and supervision, it is suitable for kids as young toddlers.
1. Paint paper plate yellow and allow to dry.
2. Glue a few feathers to the top of the paper plate.
3. Glue 2 googly eyes to the front of the paper plate chick.
4. Cut a beak and feet from the orange paper and glue to the plate.
This paper plate chick would also make a great craft when studying farm animals.
