Easter Chick Card from Kaboose.com

What you’ll need:

  • Print the Easter Chick Card sheet (PDF)
  • 2 sheets of yellow construction paper
  • 1 sheet of orange construction paper
  • 2 paper fasteners
  • 2 large wiggle eyes
  • White craft glue
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Black permanent marker or dark crayon

How to make em’:

  3. Lay the oval on the table and position the wings (hand cut outs) behind it, using the photo as a guide.
  4. When the wings are where you want them, carefully poke the fasteners through the construction paper to attach the wings. Using fasteners allows the wings to flap up and down.
  5. Using the pattern provided, cut out beak and legs from the orange construction paper.
  6. Fold the diamond in half to create the beak and glue one side of the diamond to the yellow paper so that the beak is three dimensional and can open and close.
  7. Glue wiggle eyes above the beak.
  8. Position the legs under the oval. When you have them where you want them, glue them in place.
  9. Use the marker or dark crayon to write a message on the front of the card.

Bead Babies

What you’ll need:

  • Painted wooden beads
  • Felt
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Glue
  • Scissors

How you make em’:

  1. Caterpillar: Apply a drop of glue to the end of a pipe cleaner and insert it into a large bead. For the head, position a bead so its holes look like eyes, then glue it to the first bead as shown. Slide 4 more beads onto the pipe cleaner and trim the excess, then remove the last bead and apply glue to the exposed end. Replace the last bead. Cut antennae from the felt and glue them behind the first bead.
  2. Bunny: Choose 2 beads, one slightly larger than the other. With its holes positioned to look like eyes, glue the small bead over one of the holes in the larger one. Cut the ears, tail, and feet from felt and glue them in place. For stability, make sure the feet fit squarely beneath the bunny’s body.
  3. Ducky: Follow the directions for the bunny but swap a felt bill, feet, and wings for the ears, tail, and feet.

Hoppy Easter!
