Hello! Welcome back to another Easter Craft ideas for you – these adorable Chicken Egg Cups made from Egg Cartons! Super simple, super cute. Takes minutes to make. But actually, these are not just for Easter, I think they definitely fall into the Spring Craft category too!

AND… avaible in Russian too: Egg Carton Chicks
I made one, showed it to the kids and Pip Squeak decided to have a go, whilst Red Ted, just wanted to have mine. We have that a lot lately – I think school is making him tired and he just wants to watch and relax. Fair enough!

Materials: an egg carton that has those “peaks in the middle”, one carton will make 2 chickens, felt (or craft foam), googly eyes, PVA glue and feathers optional
1) Cut out your egg carton – I have shared a video below, that shows REALLY well how to cut out the carton to be left with the “right part” for your chicken.
2) Cut out your chicken’s beak and comb etc. You may want to shape your comb a little to fit the shape of the head. This will make glueing easier. We didn’t and just squished it on.
3) Glue on.
4) Pip Squeak decided hers needed feathers too! Love how she makes this craft “her own”. So she added lots of glue around the back for feathers.
5) Let dry and done! Decorate the breakfast table or your Easter table.
