A bright, fun and simple Easter art activity for young children. Lovely and messy!
I love the kids art around spring time, they always seem extra proud of spring art, kids seem to have a natural love of baby chicks and baby lambs and really enjoy the cute aspect of creating spring art work.
What you need to make Easter chicks
- white paper
- yellow paint
- paint tray/old plate
- paper plate
- nice scrap paper – shades of blue cut into small triangles
- A4 sheet of yellow paper
- A4 sheet of orange paper
- brown pencil
- sticky tape
How to make Easter chicks
- Firstly tip the yellow paint into the paint tray/old plate and make lots and lots of yellow handprints.
- Once the handprints are dry cut them out – young children will need help with this.
- Cut the paper plate in half – leaving a zigzag edge for the cracked egg shell effect.
- Splatter the paper plate with glue and stick on the blue triangles – this will be the egg shell.
- Cut a circle out of the yellow paper to be the chicks body. Stick this to the egg shell.
- Splatter the yellow circle with glue and stick on the yellow handprints – these will be the fluffy spring chick.
- Next cut out two circles from white paper and colour pupils with a brown pencil – these are the chicks eyes.
- Cut out a triangle of orange paper to be the chicks beak.
- Stick the eyes and beak onto the chick with glue.
This is a lovely craft to kick off spring time and Easter celebrations.
