Easter Hatching Chick Craft with Template

As soon as the Spring days hit my kids and I start doing our favorite Easter Hatching chick craft! We make so many of these with different colored eggs. You can keep them by themselves or stick them onto some cardstock and make a Happy Easter card or even a Spring Birthday card!

I love easy Easter crafts for kids and this is such a good idea for children of all ages. Preschool kids will enjoy decorating the egg and older ones will too.

You can use the patterns from the template or you can let your 3 year old freestyle and see what they come up with!! Why not make lots of different colored eggs; you can print several copies of the template if you wish.

Your little chick can have different eggs to hatch from!!

This craft procedure has only a few steps and the free PDF template makes it so simple that young kids will be able to do this alone (win win for Mom who gets some free time to maybe have a coffee)

If you love baby animals you will also enjoy my list of cute chick crafts, which are perfect for Easter.
