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.

How to Make a Easter Chick Paper Craft

We love working with paper strips, this project is a spin off from our super popular paper strips peacock craft  (also see the this paper strip sheep as if you need more Eastery ideas)

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)
  • glue

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.

Cut a circle shape out of yellow paper. This will be the body of your little chick.

Glue this circle onto the sheet of white (or whichever color you choose) paper.

Take the paper strips and make little paper loops – glue the ends of the paper strip together.

Make the loops from all of your paper strips. Let the glue dry.

Take one loop, apply glue at the end of it (where you glued the two ends together), one side only…

And stick it onto your Easter canvas :). Position it either on the left or the right side of your chick’s body.

Glue all the paper strips, forming the wings (a candy shaped creation).

You can even layer the paper strips to give your chick craft even more volume.

Cut the legs out of orange paper.

Glue the legs on the body of the chick.

Also cut the beak and glue it onto the chick.

Add a set of eyes.
