We have another simple paper craft idea to share with you today. We’ve been loving all the diversity simple paper strips offer when it comes to crafting (and these chicks prove that).

Chicks truly are adorable little creatures don’t you think? And Easter is the time of the year when their popularity really, really peaks.

If you are in a need of a fun chick craft idea for a classroom these are your thing as you can easily “thread” them on a string and make a fantastic garland. You wouldn’t even need to limit yourself (well the kids) to sticking to yellow color for this project. Use pastels and have a nice variety of Easter chicks.

Naturally this is also a wonderful project to do with your kids at home.

Ready? Grab your scissors or a paper trimmer and let’s get this show on the road.

Simple Paper Chick Craft

What you need:

  • yellow construction paper
  • orange construction paper
  • scissors or paper trimmer
  • glue
  • wiggle eyes stickers

We have prepared both video tutorial and photographed steps for making this little project, as we know some things are easier to follow by watching videos, while others are by following written instructions.

Or Follow These Simple Step by Step Instructions

Start by cutting strips of yellow construction paper. We have cut ours across the width of a A4/letter sized paper. The strips were as wide as a finger.

You will need 4 strips of paper for each little chick.

If you are working with younger kids you can make the strips of papers wider and only use two.

Older kids on the other hand can make thinner strips and use more.

step1

Gently fold the strips in half – do not crease.

This will make it easier to locate the middle.

step2

Apply glue at the middle of one paper strip.

Stick glue works out great with paper projects. White school glue will work good too but will need a little bit more time for it to set.

step3

Glue another paper strip on the first one, making a cross.

Press down with finger for the glue to set.

step4

Glue on two more strips of yellow construction paper.

You should see a snowflake like shape now.

step5

Time to make the chick ball :).

Apply glue on one strip of paper (one end) and take the other end and glue them together, making a circle.

step7

Repeat with all other strips of construction paper.

Once all strips are glued together a ball shape should form.

step8

Cut two wings out of construction paper.

step10

Glue the wings onto the ball. We glued them onto both sides of the same paper strip.

Fold a bit so the wings are nicely seen if you look the chick from the front.

step11

Cut a beak shape out of orange construction paper.

Glue the beak on the paper ball.

step13

Last but not least add two wiggle eye stickers or draw your own eyes with a marker.

Stickers are always a bit more fun though.

step14

Your simple paper chick craft is all done!
