Every spring, kids go crazy for Easter.
They get their baskets filled with candy and chocolate, they get to dress up, and of course, they love hunting for hidden eggs!
One fun tradition you can start this year is making an Easter card for someone special.
This year why not make one that’s shaped like a baby chick with this cute chick card craft?
It’s easy to make and is perfect for creating with kids preschool age or older! You can download our free template and make it this spring!
Practice fine motor skills and more with this easy craft and be sure to check out all of our chick craft ideas for more projects.
Homemade Easter Card
- Colored cardstock or construction paper
- Glue stick
- Chick template (enter your email in the form at the end of the post to have the link sent to you)
Download the chick template, print, and cut out the pieces you need.
Fold the chick card base along the dashed line, then cut out along the chick’s body, leaving the top, flat line uncut.
Take the eyes and glue them to the middle of the chick’s head area.
Next, glue the beak just below the eyes, in the middle.
Create the egg by gluing the egg spots along the top and bottom eggshell. Trim off any paper that hangs off the sides.
Take the top eggshell and glue it to the top of the chick’s head, slightly overlapping the eyes. Finish off by gluing the bottom eggshell to the bottom of the chick’s body.
Open up the card and have your child write a special message inside.
Isn’t this such a cute homemade card? We think whoever receives it is going to love it!
Easter Ideas For Kids
Want more Easter activities that will keep the kids engaged, learning, and having fun? We have some great ideas below to get you started!
There’s something about reading aloud that just can’t be matched. Reading to your kids may sound like a no-brainer, but it has been shown time and again how beneficial this practice really is for their development! When you read with them they get an opportunity not only to hear new words – which will enrich any vocabulary level–but also learn about different topics!
For those reasons and more, we love starting with books!
There are so many great Easter books for kids, but these are some of our favorites. Grab them from the library or buy them to add to your child’s collection!
Happy Easter Mouse – Everyone knows Mouse from the classic If You Give A Mouse A Cookie book, but now he’s back and ready to celebrate Easter! Kids will love watching him as he goes on an Easter egg hunt!
Pete the Cat: Big Easter Adventure – Join Pete as he races to help the Easter bunny just in time for Easter! This is another new classic kids rate as a must-have!
It’s Not Easy Being A Bunny – Follow PJ the bunny as he tries to discover what kind of animal he’d rather be instead of a bunny! It’s a silly story with a great lesson.
There’s no better way to get your little one excited about learning than by engaging them in crafting. It can be as simple or complex as you want, but regardless of what it entails, they’ll have a blast exploring all their new creative options!
