How to make a Pop Up Chick Card for spring and Easter
Simple chick Pop Up Card – supplies needed
- Card stock – we used A5 card folded in half to make an A6 card – you can make it any size you want!
- Contrasting paper or construction paper (e.g. pastel yellow paper or pastel pink paper etc)
- Paper scraps (for beaks, grass, maybe some little Easter eggs etc)
- Glue stick
- Pen/ markers
- Envelope (we used a UK standard sized envelope..)
As with all our crafts, work with the supplies you have to hand, instead of heading out to the craft store to make some unnecessary purchases! Keep it low cost and as thrifty as possible, especially if making Easter cards in the classroom! We have avoided feathers and googly eyes this time, to make it cost effective for the classroom but also because using just paper is more eco friendly! Either way these cards are easy peasy to make.

How to make a Pop Up Chick Card for Easter – Step by Step Instructions
This really is a simple pop up card, to which you can easily add a personalized message and decoration!
Preparing the Paper Chick’s body features
- You will need to cute some wings, beak and feet, as well a some grass. As mentioned, you could also add some Easter Eggs (you could even have a little Easter bunny in the background) or Hearts, depending on seasons and how you want to finish it all off
- The chick’s wings are cut from the same coloured paper as the body – I cut a “heart shape” but with three humps
- The chick beak is just a thin triangle
- And the chick’s feet are made of two orange hearts
Make your Paper Chick Body
- Cut 9-10 white circles (you can use our template for size or use small cup/ lid)
- Fold the circles in half.
- Add glue to one half of the circle and lay a second circle on top. When you have half your circles stuck together, add the beak and then add the remaining circles.
- Continue until all half circles a stuck together.
- Add to small circles for eyes on either side of the beak.
Final Assembly of your Chick Pop Up Card DIY
We used blue card to represent the sky in one example and white cardstock to show that these pop up chick cards look nice on any background!
- Make sure you have NOT closed the paper bauble “in on itself”.
- Position the paper bauble in the centre of the card and glue the bottom half of it down (not the top, as you still want to slide “bits” in)
- Now you can add glue to your paper chick’s wings to the top and the bottom “circle”.
- Draw some straight lines and add your paper chick’s feet.
- Finally add you the paper grass to the bottom of the card!
Ta-daaaaaa! Aren’t they adorable? So quick and easy to make and I think the kids will love them! You can of course add extra details, such as little hand colored Easter eggs or an Easter bunny in the background with a “Happy Easter” message added to the front or inside.
Once done, pop it in an envelope and surprise someone with your lovely Pop Up Easter Card (or spring card.. or birthday card… you get my drift!!).
