Follow These Step by Step Instructions
Print out our movable chicken paper doll template. We really recommend printing it on card stock paper , the heaviest your printer can manage. Laminating the parts of the template (after you color and cut them) is also an option and something we recommend.
Color in all the desings. If you are using this as an Easter craft, make the eggs really colorful.
Make the little holes. We recommend using a skewer to punch through the two holes on the body of the doll and two holes on each wing. Older kids can make the holes by themselves, while younger kids will need adult assistance.
Cut out the designs.
Push the yarn through the outer hole on the wing. Plastic needles are a handy tool to use, as we didn’t have one we improvised and made a needle out of paper.
Continue by pushing the same thread through the outer hole on the other wing too.
Push the brad through the hole on the body of the chicken, with the open side coming out on the back of the chicken body.
Place the wing on top of the body, with the brad going through the inner hole of the wing. Spread the open ends to secure the brad.
Repeat with the other wing.
Glue a craft stick on the back of the chicken body. We used both glue and secured it with some tape just to be sure it will really hold.
Position the wings so that they are “loose like they are falling down”. Tie the yarn together.
Enjoy playing with your movable chicken paper doll.
