Pop Up Paper Plate Chicks

Arty Crafty Kids | Craft | Easter Crafts for Kids | Pop Up Paper Plate Chicks

These Pop Up Paper Plate Chicks are super fun and easy to make. Perfect for a spot of Sping crafting with the kiddies, who will just LOVE playing with their creations.

It’s a particularly good craft to do during the build up to Easter, where the kids may notice that the warmer weather brings new life.

With birds busily building their nests and new chicks emerging, our craft offers kids an opportunity interpret their seasonal observations with creativity and play, which will have the kids chirping in no time!

Sound good? let’s get started…

To get started, you will need a Paper Plate, a pair of scissors and a stapler.

Simply cut the Paper Plate in half and then place the two halves on top of each other. The curve of the Paper Plate will create a nice gap for the chick.

Secure the Paper Plates together with a stapler. I tend to use staples sparingly in all my kids crafts and for this craft you will only need a few!

Next, get the kids to mix a nice up a nice mucky brown colour and paint the paper plate.

Once the paper plate has dried, add a topping of craft straw and stick with PVA Glue.

Leave the nest to dry and let’s move onto the chick!

Our little chick is made out of paper and felt scraps.

If you don’t have any felt to hand, use the materials you have to make wings and some head tuff – of course the ‘tuff’ is an optional extra, I just think it’s rather cute!

Ask the kiddies to cut out all the shapes they think they will need to make a chick. This could produce some interesting results, but it’s always good for kids to take the lead.

Assemble the chick complete with wings, a beak and ‘tuffs’ using PVA Glue.

Finish off with a couple of dots for eyes.

Secure the chick to the paper straw with piece of tape and add the chick to the paper plate nest.

Next, it’s PLAY time!

My own children had a blast playing with their pop up chicks, creating all sorts of stories and singing ‘old Macdonald’ to their baby brother, who was left in hysterics with the exaggerated popping.
