Today my daughter decided to make an Easter themed craft for her Dad to say Happy Easter. She didn’t want to do another Easter card so decided to make a paper plate chick. She made this craft in school a couple of years ago and she has revisited it lots of times since. I think she loves how simple and cute the chick looks! This craft is super easy and doesn’t require many materials so is very cheap to make!
To make your chick you will need – paper plate, yellow paint, orange card (or paper coloured if you have none), googly eyes, glue, paper and orange paint.
1 -Begin by painting your paper plate yellow. This will form your chicks body. Next paint your hands orange and print down onto a piece of plain paper.
2 – Whilst these are drying make a beak by cutting out a triangle on a folded piece of orange card so that it opens like a beak. We used paper which my daughter coloured in orange as we have ran out of orange card!
3 – When your paper plate and hand prints are dry cut out your hand prints and glue them on either side of your paper plate. (I stick onto the back of the plate so that it looks neater). Next stick on some googly eyes and your beak.
4 – Make your chicks legs by cutting out two strips from your orange card (or coloured paper) and fold them to form a concertina effect. Attach to the back of the plate using glue or sticky tape.
A wonderful, simple craft to make over the Easter weekend! I hope you all have a lovely Easter!
