Peek-a-Boo Chick Paper Plate Spring Craft for Kids

Spring is a fun time to make your very own paper plate spring craft with your kids. This peek-a-boo chick kids spring craft is so cute peeking it's head out of it's little shell!

We all know that spring brings new beginnings. New flowers, new weather, and even babies!

I don’t mean the human kind. They come year round.

I mean the little ones that peck their way out of little shells. They have fuzzy feathers, short little legs, and have the cutest little peeps.

Yes, I’m talking about baby chicks!

When I interned at the Oklahoma State Fair years ago I was lucky enough to work all over the fairgrounds and one of the exhibits was a baby chick exhibit.

I was able to watch them crack their little shells and come out as brand new babies.

To celebrate the new season, my sons and I made our very own peek-a-boo chick kids paper plate spring craft. Enjoy!

Kids Spring Craft Directions

Half way down one of the paper plates, cut a zig zag pattern all of the way across.

Cut large and small eye circles from the white construction paper. Cut medium eye circles from the black construction paper.

From the orange construction paper, cut out a small square and fold in half from point-to-point. This will be used for the beak. Cut out hair fuzz from the orange paper.

Using the yellow paper, cut out a shape for head of the chick, making sure you cut out a handle at the bottom.
