I know Easter is a while off yet but we were in the mood for a bit of Springtime at the weekend and an Easter craft seemed to fit the bill (pun intended).

Easter chicks made from sheets of foam, with googly eyes and card feet.

I like the way mine is looking a little afraid and his is looking a bit wicked!

To Make  Easter Chicks

You will need

  • 1 sheet of yellow funky foam or cardboard for the body
  • 1 sheet of orange cardboard for the feet
  • googly eyes
  • a little bit of orange funky foam for the beak (if you’re using cardboard you will already have plenty!)


  • Draw around an egg cup on the yellow funky foam or cardboard – he discovered that you don’t actually need to do this for the foam, you can just press down and the egg cup leaves a print

  • Cut around the circle
  • Cut a triangle of orange foam or cardboard for a beak and stick it on with glue – or, if you’re Bonus Boy, decide that glue just won’t cut it and come up with a self crafted peg instead

  • Snip off the top of the peg if you’re going for the emergent engineer option
  • Stick on a googly eye
  • Cut the feet out of orange cardboard
