For the past few years, we have made these adorable Handprint Spring Chicks and they are always a hit with the kids. And, let's be honest, what parent doesn't love a craft that includes their little one's hands? I know they're always the ones that I hold on to!
For this craft, we used:
Orange, Yellow, and white construction paper
2 brads for each chick
1. This is one of those activities where your older kids can cut out the egg shapes to get some fine-motor and scissor practice, while you cut out the feet and hands. Have each child choose a color or their eyes and color the pupil of the eye as shown. (All of our kids chose blue.)
2. After all the pieces are cut out, let the kids glue their faces and feet onto the chicks.
3. Have an adult attach the handprints as wing to the sides of the chick using brads. Sometimes it is easier to poke a hole into each piece of paper before attaching them with the brad.
