Easter is a time when lots of new life appears. Everyone loves to think about bunnies, lambs and of course newly hatched chicks!

I love my large collection of chick crafts for kids. Let’s face it all little kids love chicks as soon as Spring comes around. 

This chick in a basket pop up card is great Easter card to make to send greetings. It would also be brilliant to give this as a new baby card for those born during the Easter period. 

I have made a few other Easter pop up cards, shown below. You can learn how to make a Easter bunny card or a religious Easter pop up card if you prefer these over the chick!
