We do love some cute Easter Chick Crafts here at Red Ted Art. Of course suitable as spring chick crafts too! Whether Easter crafting or spring crafting.. continue to read!
To be honest, I didn’t realise that we had quite so many chicks and chicken crafts on the website until I started writing this for you (I also discovered we have a great set of Easter Basket DIYs, Bunny Crafts and Egg Decorating crafts!! Whoop)!
Sometimes it easier just to take all the old craft ideas and put them all in one place for you to browse, isn’t it?! These hens, chicks and chickens are perfect crafts for Easter as well as spring crafts.
I think you can make a number of these as little Easter Basket gift ideas – moving away from all that chocolate and instead making something cute that your kids can play with!
Onto our adorable chick crafts for kids to make
One of our favourite chicken or chick crafts to date – these adorable little Pyramid Juggling Chooks! They are a super easy beginners sewing project and once you have made one you won’t want to stop! See below for our LARGE Pyramid Chicken, which is great as a door stop!
Cutest of cute egg shaped Easter Chick Garland!! So easy to customise the colours and designs for your Easter decor. Grab the printable today!
Quick & Easy Chick Planter DIY
Oh my! These cute little Spring Chick Planters make the PERFECT no candy gift idea this Easter. They are super quick and easy to make and look so cheerful. Perfect for succulents and small cactii. A gorgeous Easter Gift or Easter Decoration to make!! You can have lots of fun with lots of different colors exploring the spring color palette! I know these are planters, but they would make cute table decorations too.. fill with Easter grass and chocolate bunnies! Too cute.
If fluffy chick crafting is your thing.. then of course you need to have a go at the classic Pom Pom Chicks – these were made using the Finger Pom Pom Making method, but of course the pom poms made with cardboard discs work really well too. Then add a diamond shaped felt beak, feet and googly eyes and done! Doesn’t a single pom pom at the end there make an adorable baby chick?!
Another fluffy chick DIY. Well.. you do need a pom pom in any easter chick crafts round up. These little chick pom poms have fluffy wings. So cute and fun to make. Check out how easy it is to add the wings!

Another little favourite are our stone chicks – actually, they are stone DUCK chicks to go with the “5 little ducks song”, but who is going to worry about a Duck vs Chicken.. right? Cute they are! And easy to make, pop over and follow our simple pattern and instructions today.
Recycled chick DIYs to make with kids
Adore this little Easter set. Turn an egg carton into an Easter nest, complete with with either hard boiled or “blown” out Egg Chicks (just ad the chick’s beak and some dots for eyes to a yellow egg) – not quite egg carton chicks, but certainly a nice compbination of eggs and egg carton crafting. Oh and we have a free Mother Hen template for the kids to decorate with paint or crayons or markers too!
Wonderful decor OR table centre piece with real eggs! A fabulous Easter Craft for Preschoolers indeed!!
Ah but the Egg Carton Chicks are here now: Probably one of the most popular Easter Chicken Crafts here on Red Ted Art – the egg carton chicken. Love this little guy so much.. and perfect for any Easter breakfast.
Turn Toilet Paper Rolls into fabulous Chick Gift Boxes! How cute are these? And they are no mess and only take minutes to make!!
Another one of my FAVOURITE Easter Chick Makes from over the years: these tissue paper chicks. I love how easy, fun and colourful they are and how young children can manage to make these tissue paper chicks too. We went and made them in Red Ted’s preschool class too and they ADORED them. Some people like to make these with craft eggs or wooden eggs – but really, using a hollow egg is the best – so fun and thrifty!
As mentioned above, the great pyramid chicken sewing pattern, also makes for a fantastic doorstop! This is one is made form an old pair if jeans. Wonderful upcycling!
Super cute paper chicks to craft at home or in the classroom
Adorable Chick and Chicken Corner Bookmark Design! These are fabulous paper chicks to make with kids! I love the little baby chick craft too! Mother hen and baby chicks.. just too cute!
Or how about taking some Easter crafts inspiration from these adorable Easter Basket hens (and bunnies)? Make a yellow version for some baby chicks. Simply ADORABLE!! Love that they are made from recycled tissue paper, so you don’t even need get out the paints. We made these using craft glue, but I reckon you could up the ante on the eco friendly and use homemade paper mache paste too!
We also made some cute chick easter baskets (similar to the hens above). I love how cheerful the yellow is!
Learn how to make tangram shames and turn these tangrams into cute origami tangram chickens!

These are super simple Origami Envelope Chicks!!! Write a letter, fold your envelope, decorate and post!! Job done. And OH SO CUTE! All you need is some yellow paper for the main craft and then some orange and pink paper off cuts to add the finishing touches.
Quirky paper chicken origami I feel I need to make a little orange one next to complete the range!
