Spring is when new life reaps, and these cute Easter chick crafts are perfect for this time of the year.
My kids love watching the hens but they love it even better when the eggs hatch and the tiny chicks are born, normally during March/April time! We live near several farms so we get to appreciate this!
There are stacks of chick crafts for kids, like my Spring chick who is super simple to make!! My kids love playing with him afterwards.
Get stuck into these suggestions, which I plan to add too as I come across more chick Easter crafts for kids!
We have every type of activity imaginable and something to suit all age ranges, whether it is handprint art or a sewing activity! The good news is that kids can complete all of these with adult supervision and help.
There are so many ways to make a chick using common craft materials.
I am hopefully planning to add a few new chicken crafts for kids this year. A chick wreath and chick pop up card are on my agenda. These will be simple enough for young kids also.
How cute is this recycled chick? This Mr and Mrs chick couple are made from cardboard and oil pastels!
My easy craft tutorial shows kids how to make a Chick Pop up Card for Easter! It comes with free printable templates and simple instructions
This Easter hatching chick craft with template is perfect for kids who to craft with paper this Spring! It is so simple and lots of fun!
Kids love making my Easter chick wreath craft! It is a great way to decorate your home this Easter! My free printable template and instructions make this activity simple enough for the littlest of kids!
Are you looking for a sewing craft for Easter? If so this chick plush craft will be right up your street.
I know my 10 year old niece would love this as she has started doing needlework.
She would enjoy making a tiny chick hatching out of an egg.
How cute is my little spring chick who looks as if he has just hatched out of an egg carton!! This little guy/gal is made from pom poms and pipe cleaners.
I adore my spring chick made by recycling a foam cup and adding features, feet, beak and googly eyes.
How adorable and soft do these easter chicks look! They only require 5 materials including pom poms and yarn! The end result is fabulous!
I could imagine my kids taking these to bed in place of their teddy bears.
This Easter chick craft using a drink koozie is the perfect way to keep your drinks cool on a warm Spring day. Easter is in mid April this year and occasionally here in the UK we get decent sunny weather, so we need bottle coolers and this is perfect.
These rainbow colored chicks would be an ideal craft for kids to do at an Easter party.
This blogger uses wooden eggs but when I was a little girl we used to decorate real boiled eggs as chicks and roll them down a hill to see who won.
You could do all sorts of games with these wooden chicks, without the hassle of them cracking!
Easter chick crafts like this one using a cup are super easy to do! I have several foam cup crafts right here on my site, and I love them.
The kids can do the painting for this craft, and Mom should help to cut the wings and beak. Of course you could always substitute the paper wings for feather wings should you have some in your craft drawer.
If you have balloon loving kids in your house, chances are they will go cluck crazy over this chick craft!
I would suggest you have lots of spare balloons in case you burst one while adding the beak and feet.
Spring crafts for preschool do not come much simpler than this, but there are few materials needed. This make it an inexpensive craft for a group of children to do at the same time.
Why not make one in every color?! This is a good opportunity to teach the different colors to 3 year olds!!
If you are looking for a 5-10 minute spring chick craft for your toddler or preschooler this fuzzy chicken is it!
Unlike some of my Easter chick crafts this one is made with the real deal, i.e hard boiled eggs!
Just make sure you are not tempted to crack into them!
Handprint crafts are hugely popular and this Spring chick craft is no different.
Kids are sure to love getting their hands and feet covered in paint for this fun craft!
This is a good opportunity for kids as young as 4 to test their cutting skills and see how well they can cut out their own handprints.
Look at this super soft squishy chick!! The picture is deceptive but I am told it is the size of a small ball, which means your little can lie on it and use it for cuddling!
Paper crafts for kids are immense and this one uses bleeding tissue paper, as opposed to normal tissue paper.
This looks so much fun, I can really imagine my 4 year old doing this craft.
Paper plate animal crafts are one of my most visited posts here on this website!
This paper plate chick is different to what I have come across before but it looks unreal.
It involves using yellow Easter grass to make the chick's face. I think this is a great sensory activity for kids, and adds a bit more to their craft experience than just coloring or painting the chick's face.
If you are looking for an Easter chick craft that you can gift to someone then this is it.
It features an adorable pom pom chick sitting on top of a gift box.
You could add some Easter candy or small eggs inside the box and give this to a child.
This garlan chick would be an ideal Spring craft for an older child.
You can make it bigger by using larger styrofoam balls.
Hands up if you are looking for Easter crafts for toddlers?! This is a safe way to do handprint craft without using real paint!
Adding popsicle sticks means you can use the handprints as puppets afterwards.
A great painting craft for Easter is a clay pot chick. You can gift these for sure.
What will you do with your cute Easter chicks? Will you let your kids proudly display them in their bedrooms (my 4 year old refuses to part with her favorite crafts), or will you gift them to relatives?!
These little chicks are my kids favorite Easter animal so I am guessing we will be doing one of these crafts daily for several weeks in the lead up to Easter!
If I give mine away I always make sure to take lots of pictures of them so I can remember what they looked like! Please tell me which one is your favorite!
Chicken Crafts for Preschoolers
I am getting lots of requests for ideas for chicken crafts for preschoolers. Whilst all my chick crafts can be used for all ages, some require more adult assistance than others.
In my opinion the easiest chick crafts for preschoolers involve paper plates. Three year olds love painting. They can paint a paper plate yellow, glue on an orange beak and some googly eyes. Mum or school teacher can help them do some handprints for wings, as well as cutting out some orange legs for their chick!
Fruit cups and old tin cans are also easy to decorate as chicks!
