My daughter, Kayleigh, is almost 3 years old, and lately she has been showing quite a lot of interest in making crafts. She’s a very imaginative little girl, and loves to build and make things. With Easter coming up soon, I thought it would be a perfect time to make an Easter craft with her.
After asking her if she wanted to make a bunny, lamb or chick, she excitedly told me that she would love to make a cute little Easter chick. I raided my craft stash to see what I had on hand that could be used to make an Easter chick, and found a small yellow paper cup, yellow Easter grass, cardstock, pipe cleaners and craft eyes.
Easter Chick Craft
This craft is really so quick and easy to put together. It took us less than 10 minutes! This is a great craft to make with young kids, because they don’t sit still for too long, and they like to see results very quickly. It is also a craft that is easy for them to help with. We used a glue stick to put everything together, so there is no mess to clean up!
Kayleigh absolutely loved her little Easter chick, and she had fun setting him on different surfaces around our house. She even asked to keep it in her room with her when she went to sleep tonight. As you can see, it was a big hit!
- Small yellow paper cup
- Orange, black and yellow cardstock
- 1 orange pipe cleaner cut in half
- craft eyes
- Yellow Easter grass
- glue stick
- Turn cup upside down, glue orange pipe cleaner halves onto the bottom inside of the cup.
- Next, glue the craft eyes on the front of the cup.
- Cut out eyebrows from black cardstock and place them above the eyes.
- Cut out a beak and feet from the orange cardstock.
- Glue the beak onto the cup so that it is centered directly below the eyes, and glue the feet onto the ends of each pipe cleaner.
- Cut out wings from the yellow cardstock and glue them onto either side of the cup.
- Glue a tuft of yellow Easter grass to the top of the cup. You can then trim the Easter grass to get your desired look.
