Total Time 30 minutes or less Ages school-age

Need some cute decorations for Easter and a fun craft for the kids? This sweet foam cup chick is easy to create and will make everyone smile!

What you'll need

  • 8-ounce foam cup
  • Yellow and black craft paint
  • Orange card stock
  • Yellow patterned scrapbook paper
  • 1 yellow or orange pipe cleaner
  • Tools: scissors, black marker, toothpick, hot glue gun or white craft glue

How to make it

  1. Paint the outside of the foam cup yellow and allow to dry. 

  2. Cut simple wings and feet from yellow scrapbook paper. Cut a triangle for the beak from orange card stock. Cut pipe cleaner it half. Line the two halves up next to each other and cut off 1-inch from each one. 

  3. When paint has dried, glue the wings to the sides of the cup. Glue the orange triangle to the front of the cup. Poke two holes in the top-front (near the rim) of the cup and insert the two long pipe cleaners. Poke two holes in the bottom of the cup (will be the top of the chick's head)and insert the two small pipe cleaners. Add a little glue to all the pipe cleaners near the holes. 

  4. Glue the paper feet to the end of the legs. Use the handle end of a paintbrush to dot on two eyes and draw eyebrows on with black marker. Bend the legs and sit your chick on a shelf.
