Easter handprint art gets 3D with this cool chicken handprint craft for kids.
This lovely Easter craft for kids will look wonderful next to your Easter eggs.
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
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.
