Easter Egg Chicks

This fun craft enables kids to give an Easter egg a new look and be creative.

To make chicks, kids will need to cut triangular beaks and feet from orange paper. Glue the beaks onto the eggs so the point faces downward. Kids might also want to fold the triangles in half before gluing them on the eggs. This will give the chicks a three-dimensional look. The process to give the chicks feet is the same as the beaks, except you can form pipe cleaners into feet for chicks and glue this to the egg with a glue gun. Use wiggly eyes for the eyes, or use a marker. You can add glitter to your chicks. Kids can dot on eyes with a marker. They might also want to glue on feathers for a little extra embellishment. Plain white or brown eggs work well for this project. For added pop, try dyed yellow eggs for chicks.

Feedback from Crafts Mom

This craft is so much fun to make my children just adored making these Easter chicks from dyed eggs. I used the recipe for egg dye made from food coloring and hot water and vinegar, to dye the eggs for these chicks. The glue seems to stick so fast and adhere right away to an egg I recommend using this if you can. I let my eggs sit in the dye overnight, and then make the chicks with my children the next day. Feathers are fun to add to these chicks and different sized cut beaks. I folded the paper over and then cut the triangle, so that the paper folded in the center and this is where I glued the beak to the egg.
