Easter Chick in Egg Decoration
This unique Easter chick in egg decoration is a fun craft for kids of all ages from kindegarten to ten-year-olds. Simply using wallpaper, paper tissues and construction paper creates a distinct feather-like texture that your kids will be amazed.
What you'll need:
- 2 pages from an old wallpaper book
- Plain white paper
- Yellow tissue paper
- Small scrap of orange construction paper
- White glue
- Crayons or markers
How to make it:
- From each wallpaper page cut half an egg shape. Make the straight edge of each sawtooth. The egg would be almost the full length of a page taken from a wallpaper sample book; so I'd estimate each section to be about ten to twelve inches but could be any size you choose.
- Glue egg sections together so that they looked hinged. The top half looks like it is hatching.
- On the white paper draw a chick's head -- this will eventually be in the egg opening, so use this as a guide to the chick's size. The chick's head is done full face.
- Tear or cut yellow tissue paper into small squares. These will be twisted over the eraser end of a pencil. I would use about two inch tissue paper squares for the younger set and an inch to one and a half for the older children.
- Draw and color eyes on the chick's head. Now cover the remaining space with glue and begin twisting yellow tissue paper around the eraser end of a pencil.
- Place tissue pieces on chick's head -- using pencil to apply. The twisted tissue paper will resemble feathers.
- Cut a diamond shape from orange construction paper for the beak. Glue it on the chick's head.
- Place chick behind hinged egg, so that it is peeking out -- glue, tape or staple in place.
- Display your masterpiece.
