Cardboard Chicks

These are irresistibly cute, aren’t they? Very cheap to make too! Time to rummage through your recycling bin and fish out some cardboard.

You’ll need:

~ Cardboard

~ Paint

~ Paintbrush

~ Old (bamboo) stick

~ Scissors

~ Glue

  1. Find some cardboard, you could use the inside of cereal or food packets.
  2. Draw your Easter chick’s body, head, wings, beak and eyes and cut out. Or use the stencil to draw round to make these shapes.
  3. Paint or colour in your chick parts adding pattern detail.
  4. Stick them together using strong glue or using split pins.
  5. Tape a stick or straw to the back of your chick to use it as a puppet or pop it in a plant pot as a decoration.
  6. Could you make an Easter bunny in the same way? Have fun! 
  7. Share a picture of it for us to post on our website and social media! Please email them to us at artclubexeter@gmail.com
