Easter is a special holiday for everyone. It is a time for family gatherings, Easter egg hunts, chocolate, and other fun activities.

Crafts are a great way for kids to express their creativity and develop their fine motor skills. It helps them learn about colours, shapes, textures and sizes. It also encourages problem solving skills and critical thinking.

Crafts can also be used to teach children about science, maths and other important concepts. Celebrate Easter with these eggstatic Easter craft activities!

Paper Chicks

What You Need

  • Yellow paper (around 20cm wide x 5cm high)
  • Orange paper
  • Double sided tape
  • 2 small googly eyes
  • Scissors
  • Black gel pen
  • Pipe cleaners (2 yellow and 1 orange)
  • Glue stick
  • Pink coloured pencil
  • Single hole puncher


For the chick’s beak, cut your orange paper into a smaller rectangle and then fold. Keep your piece folded and cut on the creased side a triangle shape.

The paper will now fold out in the shape of a chick’s beak. Hang onto the excess paper for you to make more chicks or for scrap paper for more craft activities.

Use the glue stick to glue the beak and googly eyes to the yellow paper. Draw the eye brows with the black gel pen, you can change the expression with each chick by changing the eyebrows.

Draw round circles with the pink coloured pencil and colour in for the chick’s cheeks. 

When the face is ready, use the double sided tape to stick the edges of the yellow paper together to form a cylinder. 

With your hole puncher, punch a hole roughly in the middle on the opposite sides of your chick. This is where the wings will go.

Thread a yellow pipe cleaner through the holes. Bend the pipe cleaners into little wing shapes and tuck them back into the holes.

Point them upward to create the feathers on the chick’s head. You may need to tape them to the front in the inside to keep them in place.

Make the feet by folding the orange pipe cleaner in half then fold into an M shape. Attach the feet with tape or use a hot glue gun to make the feet stronger. Bend the feet slightly upward.
