Easter crafts for toddlers: Cute paper chicken craft
If you are looking for a fun project to make with kids, go for a cute paper chicken that only take about 5 minutes! We are sure your children will enjoy making them a lot and so will you!
You will only need:
- a strip of yellow cardboard and paper
- pipe cleaners
- wiggly eyes
- black pen
- pink marker
- double-sided tape
- one-hole punch
- Cut a small beak for the chick out of yellow paper. To do this, fold a small piece of paper in half and cut out a triangle.
- Cut out a strip of yellow cardboard to form the chick’s body. Roll it to make an oval shape and glue the two ends of the strip together. You can also use toilet paper tubes and paint them yellow, if you like. Just cut them in half so that they are shorter.
- Use double-sided tape to attach the eyes and beak to the cardboard. Draw eyebrows over the eyes with black pen and paint the cheeks with pink marker.
- With a hole punch, make small holes opposite each other in the sides of the paper roll. Pass pipe cleaners through the holes and fold them into the shape of small wings and tuck each end back into the hole.
- Use double-sided tape to attach the feet to the paper roll and bend them up slightly.
