This Easter chick paper craft is a wonderful project idea for kindergarten (or even older preschoolers) as a bunch of these will make an impressive Easter display.
We’re already getting ready for Easter this year, and we have prepared all kinds of simple and fun Easter craft ideas for kids to make both at home or in the classroom.
This adorable little chicken is an easy Easy art and craft idea that is suitable for kids in kindergarten and older, if you simplify it a bit or help with a few steps, it will be a good project for older kids in preschool too. You could make the paper strips wider and feet less detailed for those who are just building up their scissor skills.
Ready to make your chick?
Let’s start crafting!
How to Make a Easter Chick Paper Craft
What you need:
- white construction paper for base (green or blue are also great, you can use any color really)
- yellow paper (regular print paper or construction paper)
- orange paper (construction paper or regular paper)
- wiggle eye stickers or googly eyes
- scissors (you can also use a paper trimmer, it’s really handy if you will be cutting the strips for kids)
You can also cut the grass out of green paper and stick it under the chick too.

Step by Step How to Instructions
Cut the paper strips. We cut ours across the width of a regular sheet of paper (letter size / A4) as a length and they were about a “finger” wide.
Cut a decent number, we think we used about 8 for each wing.
Take the paper strips and make little paper loops – glue the ends of the paper strip together.
Take one loop, apply glue at the end of it (where you glued the two ends together), one side only…
You can even layer the paper strips to give your chick craft even more volume.
Glue the legs on the body of the chick.
