This easy chick craft is perfect for younger kids to make as an Easter or spring craft. The big sponge is perfect for little hands to hold and the printing is super easy for them to do. I think it would make a great cover for an Easter card too! My daughter made these as a preschooler and loved doing so, they’re super cute and really cheerful!

Easy Chick Craft Materials
Let’s Make It!
Start by putting some yellow paint onto your plate, you’ll want a nice flat surface to work with for this. Next up dab your shower sponge into the paint, your sponge will hold a lot of paint so you’ll want to use card for this craft rather than paper or it will get very sorry very quickly! Dab your paint onto your card, one dab will make you a little chick while moving it around the paper more will give you a bigger one, just make sure you keep to a circular shape!
I’d normally share a couple of photos of materials at this point or some process shots so you can see a step by step guide but as my daughter and I were crafting together it just totally didn’t work on this occasion and believe me no one wants to get out professional photography lights when they have a four year old armed with every single paint they could find! I’m sure you can still follow the instructions on this craft though to be able to make it (if a four year old can, you can too right?!)
Once we’d painted our chicks bodies we cut out beaks and feet from orange card, eyes from black card and I cut pink cheeks out too. I had to help with the cutting as my daughter wanted ‘girl eyes’ for her chick rather than the circles I originally suggested and I have to admit they do look cuter. We stuck all our chick’s features on with glue and this is the one my daughter created.
