Today we made a hatching chick craft for Easter! Kids know that real chicks don't hatch from decorated eggs but we thought it'd be fun for the holiday to decorate it! You don't have to use the Popsicle sticks either but it's nice for kids to hold onto it while playing!
We liked bright colors for our eggs so we used some nice cardstock paper!
You will need colored construction paper, scissors, glue, a Popsicle stick, scissors, yellow feathers, and googly eyes.
Start by cutting out the bottom of the egg with white paper (if you want your chick to go up and down, cut two eggs out and staple together)
Decorate the egg shell with the construction paper making it pretty! We liked the zig zag and polka-dots idea!
Glue the egg to the popsicle stick and cut out a little yellow chick. Add some eyes, a beak, and the yellow feathers where you want. As you can see in the first picture we made the feathers look like wings but the one above has some crazy looking hair! :)
