Paper Chick Craft For Kids
Today we decided to make a duck (yes, a duck LOL) and it turned out looking like a little chick instead! So, we shall call it a chick ;) It was pretty easy to make but required a lot of cutting. You could make this for Valentine's Day since it's made of mostly heart shapes, or for Easter...etc.
You will need orange/yellow/white construction paper, glue, scissors, and a black marker.
Glue the bigger two yellow hearts together to make the chick's body. Glue on the feather pieces (small yellow hearts) and the orange legs.
On the orange heart, bend the top two edges and glue them down so it looks like a beak. Add some eyes and the heart feet.
Grab a black marker and add any details you want (lines on the legs, eyes, etc)

Easy Paper Chick Craft – How To
Of course we have a FABULOUS Paper Chick video how to for you today, but we have also copied out the instructions from this Paper Bauble post below, which can EASILY be adapted! You just need to add the beak at the beginning, as well as make your thread a bit longer to add the beaded feet!
Here are the step by step instructions for the Art Baubles – but the process of course is the same!
1) Draw 8 circles with either a cup or a simple template (print a circle off from the internet). Ours were approximately 7-8cm in diameter
2) Cut out 8-10 circle. You need to cut these as perfectly as possible for the finished effect to be at its best. We used a small cup to trace the circles
3) Fold circles in half. Make a good crease.
4) Stick the left side one to the right side of the other (I would now of course use pritt stick, much easier). I found that if I held them for Red Ted he could do all the sticking. When you get to the last one, add the ribbon. Then glue the first circle to the last
5) Even them all out a bit, if necessary add a tiny bit more glue and done!

Oh we do love a good and easy Easter paper craft and this construction paper chick craft is just that. A fun project for even the young kids and an easy decoration for kids at hearts to make.
This one is a cool classroom craft too, and if you have each of the students make one, it will be the cutest little bulletin board display (just make them without the paper base).
You could even make a super large one out of poster paper as a decoration for your home or classroom.

Oh the fun Easter crafts! It’s all about chick, bunnies and eggs – and we do love making fun projects with them all. Oh and sheep! So many cool crafting subjects.
As we do love making things with construction paper this one was just waiting to be made – we made a simple paper bunny similar to this one a while ago and it was a hit.
I do think, these construction paper chicks are even better though, I mean just look how silly looking one of them turned out – see the eyes? Crazy!
How to Make a Construction Paper Chick Craft
If you make the chicks large enough, you can even hide a Easter egg (plastic one filled with treats?) inside it’s body. Talk about a fun surprise.
What you need:

Ready? Let’s craft!

Step by Step How to Instructions
Grab your scissors! Just a tip – if you are doing prep work for this to be a classroom activity and you intend to do all the cutting we do recommend you use a paper trimmer instead.
Cut two strips of yellow construction paper, one a bit wider and the other a bit thinner and shorter.
Also cut two wing shapes.
Apply a smaller amount of glue on one end of the paper strip…
…and stick it to the other end of the paper strip, forming a paper tube.
Repeat with the smaller strip of yellow construction paper.
Apply glue on one of the paper tubes…
…and glue them one on top of the other. You have made the body of your construction paper chick.
Stick the wings on the body. We glued ours inside the larger paper tube.
Cut the base out of green construction paper.
Cut feet out of orange construction paper.
Also cut the beak while you’re at it.
Take the little orange feet and stick them on the green base.
Apply glue on the base, next to and slightly over the feet, and stick on the body of your construction paper chick.
Stick on the beak.
And the wiggle eye stickers or googly eyes.
