Hatching Chick

Hatching chick, a colorful Easter craft for kids.  Template for Easter egg and chick from ActivitiesForKids.com
This craft can be as easy as you like. There are many ways to decorate the Easter egg, or just leave plain. I used strips of colorful tissue paper to decorate the egg. Lightly brush the egg with a watered down glue mixture and attach the strips of paper. Once dry cut out the egg, including the zig-zag horizontal ‘crack’. Use a hole punch, on the top and bottom section of the egg and attach with a paper brad. For the chick, apply a light coat of diluted glue then snip a yellow feather top for a furry little chick. Attach google eyes and a red beak then glue the chick in place behind the lower half of the egg for your hatching chick.
MATERIALS:
  • White or pastel colored card stock paper
  • Google eyes
  • Small amount of red or orange construction paper for the beak
  • Paper brad
  • Craft glue
  • Hole punch
  • Scissors
  • White coffee filter
  • Hatching Chick Template

Notes:
  • It is best to decorate the egg before cutting it apart.
  • Card stock paper works well with this craft especially if you are going to glue any decorations to the egg.
  • Markers and crayons will also work well to decorate the egg.
  • If using white paper, the oval for the chick can be traced on to yellow construction paper.
