Paper Chick

Spring is officially here! Today we are enjoying some chilly, but not freezing weather, and are thrilled to be able to retire our winter related crafts! We will be back with new ideas next winter, but now it is time to move on. This paper chick craft is simple to prepare for and is great fine motor skill practice!

Materials Needed

  • White construction or computer paper
  • Yellow construction paper
  • Orange construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Googly Eyes

Getting ready to make this little chick is super easy. Start by cutting out squares from the yellow paper. Children who are younger or have issues with fine motor skills will need bigger squares, but if you have a preschooler or kindergartner, smaller squares will work well. You will also need to cut a triangle for the beak and two feet from the orange paper.

After the cutting is done, put glue in an oval shape onto the white paper. If you are feeling brave, you can also draw an oval and let your little one put glue inside.

Next, let your little one put on the yellow squares one at a time.

After all the glue is covered, add the beak, legs, and eyes!

After it dries, it will make the perfect spring time fridge art!

  2. How cute!!

  3. This reminds me a project I LOVED when I did it in kindergarten. Also, my inner 5 year is so excited about the amount of glue involved in this project. I would purposely squirt glue all over my fingers and let it dry, just to peel it off.

    1. Our toddler loves to touch the glue before she starts working on a craft or activity.
