Spring Chick Easter Kids Craft
Are you looking for an easy craft to do with the kids for Easter or just to celebrate the nice spring weather? If so, you have come to the right place! This Spring Chick Easter Kids Craft is not only very simple to do, it’s a super cute decoration to hang up to add to your spring holiday decor!
First you want to collect your supplies and make sure you have everything you need for the project.
Here is a list of what you will want to round up for this:
Embroidery loop (any size – this set has several sizes to choose from so the kiddos can choose which one they want)
Yellow card stock or thick construction paper
Orange puffy paint
I have found that when you are working with kids, it’s best to have everything ready to go before you start so you don’t have to stop what you are doing and go looking for things.
Once you have everything together, you are ready to go!
Here are the directions you follow to make this super cute Spring Chick Easter Kids Craft:
1. Trace your loop onto a yellow piece of fabric about an inch wider all around and cut it out with scissors as pictured above.
2. Remove the inner loop from your outer loop and place your circle piece of fabric onto the inner loop.
3. Place the outer loop over the fabric and smaller loop and tighten the screw on top so it looks like the picture below and the fabric is nice and tight in there with as little sagging in the middle as possible.
4. Cut out two small oval wings with the edges made to look like bird wings as pictured below. The size you cut them will vary based on what size embroidery loop you use. If you use a larger loop, you will want to make larger wings, or a smaller loop would have smaller wings so they are proportionate to the size of your chick.
5. Carefully glue the eyes onto the top center of the circle.
6. Draw a orange triangle underneath the eyes for a beak with the orange puffy paint.
7. Glue your wings to the top sides of the chick. The chick should look similar to the one pictured below when it’s done.
If you are doing this craft with young children, don’t forget to do the hot glue gun part for them or you could always try regular Elmer’s glue but it probably won’t stick as well. It’s always best to be safe when using hot glue!
On a side note, even if you get the self-adhesive googly eyes for this, I personally would still use some glue to stick them on there to make sure they don’t come off. I don’t trust the self adhesive eyes to stay on for long when you are sticking them to fabric. Even if they stay on at first, I think there is a good chance they won’t stick for long.
Then just let your chick dry overnight and find a place to hang it up to enjoy it’s cuteness!
