Hatching Chicks

Hatching Chick Activity - Kids Activities - Kids Websites

Materials: 

Coloured paper egg shapes (you will need to cut the paper into this shape)

yellow paper chick shapes (you will need to cut the paper into the shape of a chick)

glue

stickers

crayons

googly eyes (optional)

scissors

paper fasteners / something that will enable it to open and shut

Method: 

Cut the eggs in half with a zigzag cut, and invite the children to colour them, and decorate them with stickers.

Pin the halves together on one side with a paper fastener so you can open and close the egg.

Have the children glue the chick on the back of the bottom half of the egg so when you open the egg it shows the chicks head popping up.

Glue some googly eyes on the chick, and let them dry.

These are great for decoration, and children love playing with them on their own.
