Enjoy time together with your kids this Easter holiday.
This is such a cute and easy craft just in time for Easter
These baby chicks make an adorable spring decoration or centerpiece at almost no cost!
My kids had a blast making these cute fluffy baby chicks.
- pom poms
- google eyes
- orange and green construction paper
- container (such as a small box or strawberry basket)
- Glue two pompoms together
- Glue on two google eyes
- Cut three small orange paper triangles and glue on for the beak and feet
- Shred green paper to fill container
- Place chicks in the “grass”
They were adorable just like that, but who can resist…
My son made one and decided we needed three more, one for each member of the family! He used large cotton balls from the drug store for the larger ones and tiny colored pompoms from a craft store for the smaller ones.
Can you guess which one he is? His favorite color is still green! We shredded some green construction paper and filled a strawberry basket to make a comfy nest for these little chickies. My daughter went with realism with her yellow chick.
It’s now the Easter centerpiece of our family table.

Oh my goodness; those are so cute!
So cute! I know my daughter would have had fun making these!
These are so cute and simple. I love doing crafts with my kids! Thanks for the idea.

I remember making these as a child. So simple and easy for the kiddies to do. I think they’d look adorable in my Easter Lily or perched in our basket of hard cooked eggs.

That is VERY cute! I'm going to make these for my son. He loves animals!

I tried to comment from my phone, and I don't think it went through, but I wanted to tell you that these are simply adorable! My son can't wait to make a nest full.

The little yellow one in the photo actually looks like he's leaning in to his family. So cute. My daughter is looking for a small craft like this to include with the plants that people buy from her work (hippie kid works at nursery). These would be perfect propped up in the pot. Thanks for the great idea! Guess I know what I'll be making tonight.
