How to make a Chick Craft (Option 1)

Step 1: Print the Chick Template

  • Download and print the egg template for your chick craft.
  • For best results, print onto cardstock or white construction paper.

*If you do not have access to a printer, draw the top and bottom sections of a broken egg, with a 4 to 5 inch space in between, onto a piece of white construction paper.

Step 2: Make the Baby Chick

  • Use your glue stick to fill in the section between the top and bottom of the egg, leaving about an inch on each side without glue.
  • Adhere yellow tissue paper squares (about 1 inch squares) to the glue. This is the face of your chick.

*You can also choose to use snipped or torn pieces of yellow construction paper for this step. This adds another way to practice early scissors skills (if snipping strips of paper) or fine motor skills (if tearing strips of paper).

Step 3: Finish Off Your Spring Craft

  • Fold a scrap of orange construction paper in half and cut a small triangle for the beak of your chick.
  • Glue the beak in place.
  • Apply googly eyes to your chick craft.

*If you prefer, you can use our printable paper eyes in place of googly eyes.

Version 2 of this baby chick craft is a little more complex (though still somewhat simple) and adds a little more Easter flair. Plus, we’ll be using one of my absolute favorite crafting supplies…washi tape! If this is new to you, washi tape is just patterned paper tape. It comes in a million different colors and designs and is inexpensive…so you can buy lots!


  • Construction paper
  • Glue stick
  • Yellow tissue paper squares
  • Googly eyes
  • Scrap orange construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Washi tape
  • Chick Craft Template

Again, you’ll see that all of these items are part of the master list of supplies that we use for every single craft on this site and in our shop. Just fill your bag and craft along!

Step 1: Make the Chick

  • Choose a piece of construction paper, color of your choice.
  • In the center, use your glue stick to create a circle that is about 5 to 6 inches around.
  • Apply pieces of yellow tissue paper to the glue to form a the body of your chick.

Step 4: Put Together Your Easter Craft

  • Again, use the glue stick to adhere the parts of your egg to your baby chick craft, with the top of the egg just overlapping the top of the yellow tissue paper circle and repeating this with the bottom half.
  • Fold a small piece of orange construation paper in half and cut a small triangle for the beak.
  • Glue the beak in place.
  • Adhere the googly eyes.

*If you prefer, you can use our free printable paper eyes for this step instead.
