Chick Handprint Card Craft [Free Template]

Even though it’s not quite here yet, we’re already looking forward to spring!

This chick handprint card craft is our first craft of the spring season because we love seeing all the chicks at our local feed store. They’re fluffy, tiny, and oh so cute!

It’s really the only time we find ourselves at the feed store. 🙂

If your kids can’t get enough of the chicks, they’ll also want to make their own handprint card.

We’re adding this chick craft to our growing collection of Easter handprint crafts. If you’re looking for more easy, fun, and cute Easter crafts, be sure to check out our collection.

Read our simple directions or watch our quick video tutorial to see how to make this easy papercraft with your kids or students!

Begin to assemble the chick by placing the handprint onto the middle of the chick’s body. Once you find the right spot, use the hole punch to cut a circle out for the brad in the handprint.

My preschooler’s favorite part is moving the wing up and down. He says it’s like a secret message to uncover over and over again!

If you make these chicks at home, they’d make a great homemade card from Grandparents and if you make them in the classroom, send them home to give to Mom and Dad!

We love how big this craft is because it makes it even easier for little hands to help make!

This chick craft is a fun way to help teach children and work on valuable skills like scissor skills.

If you’re working with very young kids, like toddlers, have all the pieces cut out and ready to go when you start the craft.

You can help them recognize colors and shapes by asking questions like:

  • Where’s the pink circle?
  • What color is the triangle?
  • Can you find the orange legs?
  • Is the chick’s body or wings darker?

Your kids will never know they’re learning and crafting at the same time!
