Paper Plate Easter Egg Chick Surprise

Arty Crafty Kids | Craft | Easter | Paper Plate Easter Egg Chick Surprise

Today I’m showing you a classic Easter craft with a super cute added surprise. This paper plate Easter Egg Chick Surprise craft is easy and fun to make, and perfect for little hands to assemble themselves!

I adore the simplicity of the craft and it’s one those that i’m sure you’ve tried as a child yourself.

The Easter Egg offers a fabulously open-ended element where preschoolers can paint and stick till their hearts content, with an opportunity to practice their cutting skills.

And if you’re looking for an activity for a local toddler or preschool group, then the minimal set-up will be appealing.

Sound good?

Let’s get started!

Paper Plate Easter Egg Chick Surprise

Paper Plate
Construction Paper
Metallic Paint
Ribbon
Split Pin/Paper Fastener 
PVA Glue
Scissors

Arty Crafty Kids | Craft | Easter | Paper Plate Easter Egg Chick Surprise

To begin, shape the Paper Plate to resemble an oval ‘egg’ shape and then remove the top with some zig-zag cutting.

In reality, this might be a little challenging for children to do, but they will love having a go and whatever the outcome – it will be PERFECT!

Arty Crafty Kids | Craft | Easter | Paper Plate Easter Egg Chick Surprise

Now for the best bit…

To decorate our Easter Egg we started out with painting some simple metallic stripes.

I love the glittery sheen of the metallic paint and it seems to have an ‘Easter’ feel to it, of course it’s not necessary for you to run out and buy metallic paint – I’m a huge advocate for simply using the materials you have available at home.

That said, i’m sure the kids will have their own ideas about how to paint their Easter Eggs!

Arty Crafty Kids | Craft | Easter | Paper Plate Easter Egg Chick Surprise

Once the paint had dried, we added some pretty ribbon from scrap box.

Buttons, sequins, tissue paper, scrap paper etc would work just as well!

Arty Crafty Kids | Craft | Easter | Paper Plate Easter Egg Chick Surprise

To add the movable lid, secure the two parts with a split pin – this will allow the lid to move up and down to create a ‘hatching egg’.

Arty Crafty Kids | Craft | Easter | Paper Plate Easter Egg Chick Surprise

The chick couldn’t be easier to make and is simply a combination of paper and scrap felt, stuck together with a little PVA glue.

Arty Crafty Kids | Craft | Easter | Paper Plate Easter Egg Chick Surprise

Using a piece of sticky tape, add the chick to the Easter Egg.

And that’s it, you should now have one super adorable Paper Plate Easter Egg Chick Surprise for the kids to play with.

If the kids enjoyed this paper plate craft, they may also love our Pop-Up Chick Craft and Pop-Up Bunny Craft, which uses similar materials.

Pop Up Paper Plate Bunny

Arty Crafty Kids | Craft | Easter | Pop Up Paper Plate Bunny | A fun and easy Easter craft for kids!

This Pop Up Paper Plate Bunny is super fun and easy to make. Perfect for Easter crafting with the kids this Spring, who will just LOVE playing with their Easter Bunny creations!

It’s a great little craft to do during Spring where kids may begin to notice baby bunnies emerging from the fields. With grandparents who live in the country, my own kids love playing ‘spot the bunny’ in neighbouring fields and grass verges along the country roads.

With this in mind, the pop-up aspect of our Easter Craft is particularly apt.

Using materials you’re likely to already have stashed away in the craft cupboard, this couldn’t be easier to set up.

Sound good? let’s get started…

Pop Up Paper Plate Bunny

Supplies:

Paper Plate
Metallic Paint
Stapler
A Drinking Straw
Construction Paper
Craft Straw
Black Sharpie Pen
PVA Glue
Sticky Tape

Next, let’s read all bout it.

Arty Crafty Kids | Craft | Easter | Pop Up Paper Plate Bunny | A fun and easy Easter craft for kids!

To begin, cut off the top third of the paper plate and then align the cut-off third with the bottom of the remaining paper plate.

You should have a nice gap between the paper plates.

Staple the two parts of the paper plate together, using the staples sparingly and cut out a zig-zagged jagged edge along the top of the paper plate to create the appearance of a broken egg.

For younger children, you may want to help out with the cutting and sticking, however kids of around preschool age will love to try this themselves.

And for the best bit, the kids can use their artistic license to decorate their eggs in the most spectacular and individual way.

They could use paint, tissue paper, colouring pens, stickers or anything else you have at home!

We chose to decorate our Easter egg with metallic paint, which leaves a gorgeous sparkly sheen.

Arty Crafty Kids | Craft | Easter | Pop Up Paper Plate Bunny | A fun and easy Easter craft for kids!

While the Easter Egg is drying, let’s make the bunny!

Simply cut out a heart shape for the face and some bunny ears using contrasting coloured paper.

Assemble the paper together to make a ‘bunny face’ and add some craft straw for whiskers.

Complete the bunny with a pair of eyes and mouth, and affix to a drinking straw.

Add the bunny to the paper plate and start playing!

This craft puts me in the mind the of the popular nursery song “Sleeping Bunnies”

See the little bunnies sleeping till it’s nearly noon
Come and let us gently wake them with a merry tune
Oh how still, are they ill, wake up soon
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop
Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop

And could be a really fun song to sing along with our Pop Up Paper Plate Bunny, especially if you’re trying this craft with a toddler or preschool group!

Sunflower Coloring Page

There’s something about sunflowers that makes me happy. I think they make everyone happy and when sunflower season arrives, there’s nothing more exciting for kids (and adults!) than to watch their flowers grow tall and bloom proudly. It’s a flower I associate with beauty and strength, and with one particular friend in mind, whose adoration for sunflowers surpasses my own, it represents notions of friendship too.

Filled with all these romantic notions, I couldn’t be happier with how this sunflower coloring page turned out.

With the thick black lines and detailed patterns, there’s a 60’s retro quality to the design that I hope you will enjoy!

Plastic Bottle Stamping

Arty Crafty Kids | Art | Kids Art Plastic Bottle Stamping | Simple art idea for kids using recycled plastic bottles, creating fun and unusual shapes and patterns.

For this months process art challenge we’re getting arty with a spot of plastic bottle stamping.

Plastic bottles come and go with daily use, yet I have never (until now) noticed the variety of shape and texture that can be found at the bottom of a bottle. Aside from the standard circle, we found petal shapes, tear drops, ovals and plastic bottles with  all sorts of interesting ridges, bumps and lumps.

Who would have thought, that items intended for the recycling bin can be transformed into an amazing creative resource for kids to explore colour, patterns, shapes and texture!

Supplies

Washable Kid Friendly Paint
Paper or Stock Card
Bottles of Various Shapes and Sizes

Many of our process art ideas are about reusing materials readily available within the home, which keeps set-up times to a minimum – handy for eager kids looking to get stuck in!

To begin, present the paint and bottles to the kids, and take a BIG step back.

My little girl dived straight in with her favourite colour.

Arty Crafty Kids | Art | Kids Art Plastic Bottle Stamping | Simple art idea for kids using recycled plastic bottles, creating fun and unusual shapes and patterns.

And very quickly, mixed them all up!

During the process, cakes discovered that too much paint led to smudged prints and less was certainly more.

Arty Crafty Kids | Art | Kids Art Plastic Bottle Stamping | Simple art idea for kids using recycled plastic bottles, creating fun and unusual shapes and patterns.

She enjoyed mixing contrasting colours and spent much of her time exploring different combinations, which naturally evolved into pattern formations.

Some of the printing became erratic and lets say a little crazy, while some remained considered and purposeful.

This of course captures the essence of process art; It’s an exploration of style, technique and a process of cause and effect

To put it simply, it’s about learning through play.

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!

To see how it’s made for yourself, take a look at our nifty video below!

And read all about the process…

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

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!

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

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.

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

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.

Glue Resist Watercolour Easter Egg

Arty Crafty Kids | Easter | Glue Resist & Watercolour Easter Egg | A colourful and fun Easter themed art projects for kids!

Resist art is a fun and easy technique for kids, and a great introduction into watercolours! Today I have the pleasure of showing you our glue resist & watercolour Easter Egg!

I love the way the glue adds another dimension to the painting, almost lifting the egg from the page.

Hot Glue is quickly becoming one of my favourite resist materials. We’ve previously used white crayon and oil pastels with fabulous results, however the kids love running their fingers along the lines of dry glue, offering a sensory element that my children seem to enjoy.

I find that the watercolour wash against the glue is lovely and clear with this material,  and my preschooler likes the simplicity of following the lines.

If you don’t have a hot glue gun to hand, do not let that deter you from this Easter craft as a ‘resist’ can be creating using pva glue from a squeezey bottle or a white crayon/oil pastel – sometimes it’s about working with the materials you have available!

Using a hot glue gun (or alternative resist material), create an outline of an Easter Egg onto the watercolour paper.

Arty Crafty Kids | Easter | Glue Resist & Watercolour Easter Egg | A colourful and fun Easter themed art projects for kids!

Begin filling in the Easter Egg with watercolours.

If your arty kid is new to watercolours, there are two techniques they could try..

Sweep a small amount of water directly onto the paper and then add the watercolour paint. This will create softer, blendable colours,

OR

For virbant, stronger colours, simply add the water to the brush, choose a colour and then begin painting without the water wash.

Maybe your arty kid could experiment with both techniques to see what they prefer.

Continue painting until the Egg is bursting with colour.

And why stop with the egg? my kids decided to fill the entire page with paint, with gorgeous colourful results!
