Hand print arts and crafts were always popular with younger kids, I mean who doesn’t love to use their hand as a paintbrush?

We’ve shared an adorable Easter bunny handprint art a while ago, and while this Easter chicken would look pretty cool as an handprint art pressed on paper, the idea of a 3D one that stands on it’s own seemed like a fun one. And so we made one.

How to Make a Chicken Handprint Craft for Kids

What you need:

  • black marker (thick)
  • white construction paper
  • green paper
  • toilet paper roll (or other paper roll)
  • red paper
  • yellow or orange paper
  • scissors 
  • glue

Step by Step Tutorial

Place your left hand spread wide on white construction paper. 

Trace around your fingers with a black marker (you can also use a pencil and trace over it with marker afterwards.

Do not trace around your wrist.

Remove the hand.

Complete the shape.

Draw wings (inside palm) and a dot for the eye (on thumb). Draw a few lines for feathers. 

Cut out the chicken (cut along the hand outline).

Take the toilet paper roll and cut a smaller roll (about a third of the paper roll).

Cut two slits into the paper roll (one across the other).

Draw a chicken comb on red paper…

And a beak on orange or yellow paper…

And cut them out.

Stick on the chicken head. 

Push the chicken into the slits you made on the paper roll.

Cut a strip of green paper. Cut “grass”.

Glue around the paper roll.

Bend the grass.

All done, you have made a chicken handprint craft.
