Our favorite fun part of Easter has always been coloring Easter eggs. Whether as a kid myself or now together with my own kids. But there’s a lot of other really cute, fun aspects of Easter. Bunnies and chicks, especially. How about chicks in Easter eggs? Oh, the cuteness in these interactive Easter Egg Hatching Chicks might just be too much!
So we initially set off to make an Easter chick craft, settling on scrunching tissue paper on a jumbo craft stick. Because I’m all for going with what we have on hand and those jumbo craft sticks I’ve been holding onto for forever. They were missing something, though. Turns out, they needed their eggs for our interactive, popping in and out, Easter Egg Hatching Chicks! So much better than what I initially had in mind!
To make our Easter Egg Hatching Chicks super easy, I’ve included an Egg Template for size purposes. The template includes 3 eggs. You will also need tissue paper in yellow and orange as well as jumbo colored craft sticks, brightly-colored cardstock, medium googly eyes, scissors, glue, and markers to decorate the eggs. We used my trusty metallic pen markers. I will be heartbroken once the ink in these finally gives out. But you can use sharpies or any kind of vibrant marker.
Easter Egg Hatching Chicks
- Egg Template
- Jumbo colored craft sticks
- Tissue paper – yellow and orange
- Cardstock – multiple bright colors
- Medium googly eyes
- Markers to decorate
Apply glue to the end of a jumbo stick.
Rip off pieces of yellow tissue paper and scrunch in place on the glue. Make sure the tissue paper is somewhat tightly packed on the craft stick.
Rip off pieces of orange tissue paper and apply behind the yellow for the side wings and a top feather. Also cut a small orange triangle piece for the beak.
Glue on googly eyes. Let glue dry.
While the glue is drying, prepare and decorate the eggs. Begin by printing the egg template. Trace the eggs on cardstock and cut out.
Then, fold about ⅓ of the way from the bottom of the egg. Snip a diagonal line and continue making a jagged opening. Be sure to leave the edges intact so the egg stays together.
Decorate the egg with markers.
Slide the tissue paper chick through the egg opening. How cute!
