Have a pile of paper rolls? Why not make a chick toilet paper roll craft, well or a dozen as this is the perfect Easter toilet paper roll project.
We’ve made two versions of chick in this one, let’s say a brother and sister, one fully hatched and one just coming out of his or her egg shell.
We love frugal crafting material and toilet paper rolls (or paper kitchen towel rolls if you are not a fan of toilet paper rolls) fit the bill.
There are all kinds of fun activities kids can do with them, from crafts to learning games… This time, with Easter slowly closing in, we’re focusing on a crafty project – the little chicks.
Ready? Let’s start crafting!
What you need:
- toilet paper roll (you can also use a kitchen paper towel roll or store bough craft paper rolls – yes it’s a thing)
- yellow paper or yellow paint
- orange paper
- eyes (wiggle eyes or googly eye stickers)
- optional: white cardstock paper for the egg shell – I recommend Astrobrights Stardust White paper as it has specks of color in it and looks so natural.

Start by making your toilet paper roll yellow :). You can do this either by painting it yellow or by wrapping it in yellow paper.
We’re going the paper route here. Cut a strip of paper in the same width as is the height of the toilet paper roll.
Stick them onto your toilet paper roll chick.
