As an art teacher to preschoolers, kindergartners, and first graders, I have made my fair share of paper plate crafts. The best part about paper plates is their endless possibilities!
Although it’s still below freezing outside, I thought I could will spring’s return with a chick paper plate craft. It also gave me the opportunity to talk with the boys about what came first: the chicken or the egg. Just kidding!
- my chick template
- paper plate
- yellow paint
- construction paper: yellow and orange
- Print out my chick craft template.
- Paint paper plate or color and set aside to dry.
- Trace and cut out head, beak, feet, wing, and eye using construction paper.
- For this project I used the whole plate for the body of the chick. For kids with more advanced fine motor skills, try your hand at our part plate caterpillar craft.
- Glue on the parts of the chick on the plate and display!
