Paper cup chick Easter basket!

I wanted to share with you an Easter craft I did earlier today as I think it is super sweet and very cute! There are lots of ideas for simple Easter baskets on Pinterest so taking some inspiration we made some using  paper cups. I used a patterned paper cup to make it look extra special but this craft would work well with any coloured or even white cups.

To make your paper cup basket you will need – paper cup, tissue paper -shredded, yellow card, orange card, coloured card, glue, googly eyes and feathers.

1 – Begin by cutting out a circle from card. This will be your chicks head. Next glue on googly eyes and a beak. Make the beak by cutting out a triangle from a folded piece of orange card – cut on the fold so that the beak opens. Next glue down the chicks head onto the front of your paper cup.

2 – Decorate the cup with feathers and attach a handle using a strip of card.

3 – Once the cup is dry put shredded tissue paper inside. Add some chocolate eggs for a sweet surprise if you wish!

I love how simple this Easter craft is and it looks super cute! The kids loved making them and filling their baskets afterwards with the chocolate! A fantastic activity to do over the Easter holidays with the little ones.

You can adapt this craft to have whatever decoration you like on the front. You could make a lamb or an Easter egg and use sequins / glitter etc to decorate. The possibilities are vast!
