13 Chicken Craft For Kids

This week we’ve been having fun with our favorite chicken crafts for kids. 

Whether you’re working on a farm theme, or just want to find some fun springtime crafts, these little feathered friends are perfect! 

If you’re looking for more farm crafts and activities, see our Farm Crafts for Kids post.

Scrapbook Paper Chicken

  • Use scrapbook paper to create a chicken craft.
  • Use a paper punch to make a chicken craft.
  • Use a glue gun to create a chicken craft.
  • Use a hole punch and pipe cleaners or tinsel for legs, wings and tail feathers.

Chicken Felt Toys

Felt is a soft fabric that can be easily cut into shapes, which makes it the perfect material for making toys. Felt is made out of wool or acrylic fibers. 

It’s easy to work with and can be used to make all kinds of things including puppets, dolls, figures, and more!

Follow these steps to create your own chicken felt toy:

Cut out two large circles from yellow felt. Cut each circle in half so you have four pieces total (two identical). You may want to use safety scissors instead of regular scissors if you have children helping you—safety scissors have rounded tips that prevent any accidental cuts on little fingers.

Draw an eye on one of the yellow circles with a black marker or crayon—make sure it’s not too big so that it won’t cover up too much of your chicken’s face when you sew this piece together later on! For inspiration on what other features might look good on this birdie craft project try searching online for “chicken faces” or another type of animal such as dogs or cats…this will give everyone some ideas about how they should draw their own eyes 🙂

Glue both halves together at their centers using hot glue so now there’s just one big circle left!”

Egg Carton Chick

Use an egg carton to create a chick. Color the chick with markers, or paint it. Make a beak for your little chick out of yarn, and use pipe cleaners to make wings.

Cut out a piece of cardboard large enough to hold the egg carton and make a stand by folding it in half and then turning it on its side so that it looks like two triangles stacked on top of one another (this will make a triangle). 

Then cut off two pieces that are just slightly shorter than these two sides so they can slide into place as supports underneath the nest (this will keep your nest from falling over). Finally, cut out one more piece at an angle that is just slightly longer than half of each side (this will form an opening in which you can put your baby chicks). 

No glue or tape all three pieces together onto the bottom left corner of your egg carton! You might want to do this step before coloring because then you’ll have less chance of smudging when gluing them down later) 

And don’t forget about those adorable feet! They’re missing from most pictures but don’t worry: we have them here too ) Now nestle some toys or cotton balls inside before sticking it all together again for safe keeping!

Toilet Paper Roll Peeping Chick

You will need

  • Toilet paper roll
  • 2 buttons
  • Pom for beak (optional)
  • Paper for wings (I used plain white copy paper)
  • Yarn for tail feathers (I used embroidery floss, but be sure to cut it short so it’s as wide as your toilet paper roll is tall)
  • Pipe cleaners for feet (1/2″ works best)

To make the egg

Cut two circles out of yellow construction paper about 3 inches in diameter, then cut out a triangle from each circle. Make sure the smallest side is roughly the same length as one end of your toilet paper roll. 

Fold the straight edge back about 1 inch and tape it down securely so that when you fold over the other edge, there’s no space between them when they meet at 90 degrees from one another on either side—this will form an oval shape when you’re done! 

Now use double-sided tape or glue to stick down this folded outer layer so that it sticks together well enough not to fall apart while being handled by preschoolers 🙂

Toilet Paper Roll Chicken

Materials Needed

  • Toilet paper roll
  • Colored construction paper or other paper of choice
  • Scissors or a craft knife

Chicken Treat Bag

  • Use a grocery bag, or make your own.
  • Punch a hole for the handle using a hole punch.
  • Draw eyes and beak on the bag with markers.

Easy Blow Painting Chicks

This project is easy, fun, and fast. It can be done with kids of all ages, skill levels and even those who are working on fine motor skills. 

Use this tutorial if you want some quick and easy projects (that are also cute) to do with your little ones!

Fork Painted Chicks

Get creative with your child’s chicken craft by using forks to make the chicks. Use paint or markers to add details like eyes and beaks. 

The forks can be used as a template for how big a chick will be when it’s done, so make sure you have enough room on your surface for each chick before you start painting! 

This is also a great way for kids to use fine motor skills while working with tools like forks.

3D Paper Chick Craft

What you’ll need.

  • Paper plates in the desired colors
  • Markers or crayons to color paper plate edges with (optional)
  • Scissors

What to do

Cut out two circles from yellow paper. For younger children, this may be easier if you have them trace around a bowl or cup that is about 4 inches in diameter. 

This should give them a perfect circle to cut out of their yellow paper. If they are doing this themselves and don’t have tracers handy, encourage them not to worry too much about getting the circle exactly right! It doesn’t need to be perfect—a slightly imperfect shape can make the chick more realistic looking when it’s finished. 

The bottom rim of your bowl will also work well as a guide for cutting out circles; just make sure that whatever object you use has at least one straight edge so that your child can follow along easily without worrying about making mistakes!

Fuzzy Little Chick Toilet Paper Roll Craft

This tutorial is a little bit more complex than the others but it’s so adorable that I had to include it. You’ll need two toilet paper rolls, one in white and one in yellow.

Draw a face on your white toilet paper roll using a marker or crayon.

Cut out some feathers from the yellow tissue paper (the kind with shiny sides). Use your hot glue gun to attach them around the edge of your fuzzy little chick’s body. You can also use small pieces of yarn for both purposes!

Attach a small piece of yarn or ribbon to each end of your fuzzy little chick’s back as wings. Then make another shorter strand for his tail by cutting out two small triangles from some yellow tissue paper and gluing them together at one end like this:

Clothespin Chick

The Clothespin Chick is a fun and easy craft for kids.

You will need a clothespin, glue, and googly eyes. The clothespin can be painted or decorated with stickers. 

The clothespin can also be used as a puppet or a puppet stage!

Pom Chick Magnet Craft

To make these chicks, you’ll need

a pair of scissors. pom poms (you can buy them or make your own), magnets (you can buy them or make your own)

Cut the pom poms into three pieces. Cut one piece in half and two pieces into thirds. You should now have 6 pieces total — 2 full-size, and 4 smaller ones. Stick your first two smaller pom poms onto a magnet using glue or tape and let dry. Hot glue the other two larger halves to either side of this new magnet arrangement to create wings!

Recycled Egg Carton Birdhouse Craft for Kids

If you have a small child who is obsessed with birds, this recycled egg carton birdhouse craft is perfect! It’s easy to make and will keep them busy for hours. 

Plus, it only uses two things – an egg carton and some markers or crayons. 

The best part is that you can use the same cardboard to create different designs in the future if your kids want multiple houses for their flock of birds.

First, take off all of the labels from your egg carton(s). Then cut out one side of each compartment in your egg cartons as shown below:

Next, lay out four pieces of construction paper on top of each other so that they form one large piece about 8 inches wide x 14 inches tall (20 cm x 35 cm). Use a marker or crayon to color aligning lines on either side from top to bottom so there are six lines total across both sides:
