Easter Chick Art Activity for Kids

Easter art activities are on the brain! The holiday’s coming up and bunnies, chickies and eggs are popping up everywhere. The other day I posted a clothespin rabbit art activity. If you read that one you know that I found finding clothespins quite the challenge (and if you didn’t read it, I’ll wait right here while you do – it was a really fun little craft!).

Ok, so now that I have clothespins galore, I’m ready to use them all up. Instead of bunnies, we’re making Easter chicks…

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        A clothespin – The wooden kind, not a plastic pin

·        A cotton ball

·        Googley eyes

·        Clear-drying school glue

·        Tempera paint

·        A paintbrush – Or not, sometimes finding other objects (such as the cotton balls) to paint with is even more fun!

·        Craft feathers

·        Scissors

·        Card stock paper

Here’s What to Do:

1.     Paint the clothespin. Give your child a few different colors and let her mix up her own hue.

2.     Glue two googley eyes to the cotton ball.

3.     Cut a tiny triangle from the card stock paper.

4.     Fold the edge of the triangle down to make a tab. Glue the tab to the cotton ball as a beak.

5.     Dab a dot of glue on the top of the painted clothespin and press the cotton ball chick head down.

6.     Add feathers! Glue a few craft feathers onto the top of the clothespin and the cotton ball to complete the Easter craft.
