Easter Chick Project

Easter paper chick

Some cute little Easter crafts for kids to make…

Little chickens have long been a favourite decoration during Easter.   Here is a lovely little Easter project you could do with your child.

Easter paper chick
Easter paper chick

This was a fun activity that I enjoyed doing with my three-year-old grandson prior to Easter this year.

He helped me to cut out the yellow rectangles for the chicken pattern and the beak. He also helped me to stick on the eyes, wings and feet and we had a ball!

We created the face of the chicken, placing a small blob of glue for the goggle eyes that he placed very carefully on top of the glue.

Then we also glued the beak, only sticking on half of the folded cut out paper beak.  His tiny fingers were able to stick these carefully. He is a child who pays attention to detail but not all children can do this so carefully.

Items you will need…

to make the Easter Chick

  • plastic to cover your table

  • yellow paper and orange paper

  • goggle eyes

  • pink and black markers (textas)

  • yellow and orange pipe cleaners

  • quick drying clear craft glue

  • scissors

Instructions

  1. To make the beak, cut out a rectangle (3cm x 1cm) and fold it in half across the long side.

    (See video below)
Craft ideas for kids
Make a chicken beak
  • Then cut it to form a diamond shape.

  • Fold the diamond shape in half to form the beak, making the beak 1.5cm long.

  • Stick only the bottom half onto the body of the chicken.

  • Lay out the yellow body shape (18cm x 7cm).

  • Add the pink cheeks and black eyebrows, using pink texta and thin black marker.

  • Turn the body over and carefully punch two holes 4cm from each end of the body shape, half way down, just big enough for the pipe cleaner to pass through. (Refer to the photograph).

  • Take one yellow pipe cleaner, 30cm long.

  • Cut off 8cm, cut it in half to form the two top feathers, each 4cm long.

  • Run the pipe cleaner into one hole from front to back and then back through the other hole to the front

  • Then fold each end back on itself and push the ends into the holes to create the chicken’s little wings.

  • From the orange pipe cleaner, cut six 4cm pieces

  • Turn the flat body over and glue the pipe cleaner pieces on a slight angle to create the feet, each foot having 3 toes.

  • Allow the glue to dry.

  • When finished and the glue is completely dry, turn the chicken over. Bend it into a circle and tape the back with sticky tape.

  • If dry, bend the toes forward and splay slightly to form three toes on each foot.

  • When all is finished and dry, a small Easter egg can be placed in the top, to complete the decoration.

  • Have fun making your paper Easter chickens.  You could make several and put them in a little basket for display.

    Happy Easter!

    Exploring with Playdough

    playdough activities
    Making Playdough

    Playdough is a wonderful medium for children to explore.

    It is easy to make and is fantastic for a child to mould, having the freedom to explore different shapes.

    Making Playdough

    Playdough is easily made and can be created in various colours.

    Ingredients to make playdough…

    • 4 cups flour
    • 1 cup of warm water
    • Food colouring of your choice (red, blue, yellow, green)
    • Canola or vegetable oil
    • Salt

    Children learn when their minders allow them to know the feeling of the playdough in their hands.

    Setting up for playdough activities

    What you need…

    • Table
    • Playdough
    • Plastic sheet
    • Rolling pin
    • Cover-all apron for child
    • Plastic knife, fork and spoon

    The child can cut, score and shape the playdough in interesting formations, exploring flowers, animals, star shapes etc.

    After reading a book perhaps on dinosaurs or farm animals to your child, it might be an opportunity for an exercise using playdough.  Simply suggest that they create their own dinosaur or farm animal.  The child can then explore their own expression of the animal.

    Making Easter Eggs is one of many indoor activities for kids, using homemade playdough.

    a christmas card

    Easy Christmas crafts, especially Christmas crafts for toddlers and pre-schoolers, made with construction paper, pipe cleaner and pom poms are fun and easy crafts for kids to make. Here we have a Christmas tree card that kids can make.

    Christmas tree card

    Kids will love spending hours creating different colored Christmas cards and attaching them to their homemade Christmas gifts or placing them with presents under the Christmas tree.


    Homemade Christmas Cards

    The first known record of a Christmas greeting sent in the mail was in the year 1534.

    But it wasn’t until 1843 that the practice of sending Christmas cards began.  The first cards were sent in the UK when people were encouraged to make use of the newly established “Public Record Office”, now known as the Post Office.

    With the development of the printing industry, Christmas cards became more popular, even more so when the cost of mailing them dropped from one penny to half a penny.

    It wasn’t until 1875 that Christmas cards were printed cheaply enough for the custom to catch on in America.

    By the early 1900’s the custom of sending Christmas cards was widespread across Europe.

    The first handmade cards were not created until the 1910’s and often featured foil or ribbon.
