I can’t believe that March is almost over and April will be here before we know it! To celebrate a bit of spring and getting ready for Easter in less than a week my girls and I created these fun Paper Plate Easter Chick Kids Craft! Plus, I also created my first arts and crafts tutorial video below! I hope you love it as much as we do!
Paper Plate Easter Chick Kids Craft
Materials needed to create your Easter hatching chickadees:
- 2 Paper plates
- Different colored paints
- Orange construction paper
- Googly eyes
- Sponge cut into small squares
- Thin paint brush
- Craft glue
Step One: Paint your paper plate for your chick. Instead of painting our paper plates yellow, we decided to sponge our paper plates instead. I think my girls enjoyed this a lot more because it’s something they don’t always get to do. I poured a bit of yellow paint on another plate and added some gold glitter as well and had them sponge one of their paper plates entirely yellow. Set aside and allow to dry.
Step Two: While our yellow paper plates dried, we worked on our other paper plate. This will become the chicks hatching egg.
To help my girls create egg designs I had them use a pencil first when designing their egg and then allowed them to paint their designs with a thin brush. Allow your paper plate egg to dry completely.
Step Three: Add your chicks eyes, beak, and legs on your yellow paper plate once it is dry. Now allow these pieces to dry before attaching your Easter egg to the chick.
Step Four: To attach your egg on the chick simply take your paper plate egg and lay over your chick. Using your scissors tips add a small hole on the top and bottom of the plate to insert your brackets. The reason you do this is to make sure that your Easter egg is completely lined up with your chick.
Step Five: Take off your paper plate egg from your chick and cute in a zig zag motion to create a cracking egg.
Step Six: Now attach the top and bottom part of your paper plate egg on your chick. That’s it!
Now you have the cutest little Paper Plate Easter Chick Kids Craft!
