Paper Plate Easter Chick Craft For Toddlers
You are going to love this easy Easter chick craft for toddlers. We are loving all of our Easter crafts and activities this month and this one is guaranteed to become a favorite! This Easter craft is our first challenge in our 7 day Easter Craft Challenge for Toddlers (you can still sign up HERE – it’s free!).
We are keeping this craft nice and simple, with a ‘finished’ product at the end that they will be proud to show off. With all of our toddler crafts, don’t worry too much if you’re toddler wants to get a little creative and make it different. Let them use blue paint or purple feathers if they want. It’s all about getting them excited about craft and involved in the activity. The finished product is just a bonus.
What you need to make the Paper Plate Easter Chick Craft
These chicks are not only adorable but seriously easy to make. You probably have most of the materials at home already. Substitute the items you don’t already have 🙂
- White Paper Plates or you could cut out a circle of cardboard
- Yellow washable paint
- Orange construction paper
- Yellow feathers
- Googly eyes – the peel and stick ones like these are perfect for toddlers.
How to make a paper plate Easter Chick
Step 1. Start by covering your working surface with an old table cloth or some newspaper.
Step 2. Set out the paper plate and have your toddler paint them with yellow paint.
Step 3. Let the plates dry for a little while (this may take longer depending on the amount of finger paint your toddler used).
We painted the plates just before the nap and the first thing my daughter said when she woke up was: ” the chicks mama”. So off we were to finish the chicks.
Step 4. Cut some triangles out of the orange construction paper to make the peaks of the chicks.
Step 5. Invite your toddler to glue the feathers, peaks and googly eyes to the chicks.
That’s it! The most adorable chick’s a toddler can make are ready. These are seriously easy to make and they are perfect for decorating for Easter!
