Here’s a fun and simple Easter craft that you can do with the little ones. Repurpose those egg cartons to make these cute candy-filled chicks.
You will need scissors, glue, and the following:
a. Egg carton
b. Yellow paint and black marker
c. Yellow and orange card stock
To make each chick:
1. Cut two egg carton cups. Glue a 1/2″ x 1-3/4″ piece of paper to each half, acting as a hinge.
2. Paint throughout.
3. Take small pieces of card stock, two yellow and two orange, each measuring approximately 1″ x 1/2″. Fold a 1/4″ flap from the edge. From the fold, cut into triangles.
4. Affix one yellow triangle on each side of the inner bottom egg carton cup. Affix one orange triangle on the front of the inner top and another on the inner bottom egg carton cup.
5. Cut orange card stock into feet and adhere to the bottom cup. Take a black marker and draw small eyes.
Fill with candy treats, give away, and watch your loved ones chirp with delight.
