free kids printable build a chick activity

Are you looking for an easy Easter chick craft idea to do with your kids this Spring? I don’t know about your kids, but mine love little chicks. I mean who couldn’t love those cute little puff balls? You start to see them around Spring time at local farms and fairs, just in time for Easter. So to pair with my Build-a-Bunny craft, I decided to create one for the other adorable spring baby animal… the chick.

All about the Build-a-Chick Craft:

This Build-a-Chick craft features 2 pages:

  1. One page is the chick without color so he can be colored, cut out and put together.
  2. If your kids aren’t a fan of coloring, there is a pre-colored version consisting of a yellow colored little chick.

With either version, simply cut out the pieces and put the little chick together with a bit of glue/paste. It’s that simple and you have yourself a chick for easter or spring! Hang the chick on the fridge or give it away as a spring or Easter gift.

This is also a great craft for the classroom. Celebrate Spring (Starts March 20th) or Easter (April 12th) and print this out or send to your students to partake in a little Spring fun! This craft is an easy diy paper toy craft that is perfect for toddlers or preschoolers.

Go ahead and laminate

I recommend laminating all of our Build activities. Laminating gives this craft a bit more permanence. Kids can put the craft together over and over again without worrying about having to cut and color each time. I don’t use anything fancy, just a simple and easy laminator. This is the laminator I use and recommend, you literally just turn it on, it heats up, and you’re ready to start laminating anything everything!

I’m also a big fan of the self-sealing laminating pouches! They are super easy! You literally just place your printable in a letter size pouch, run it through the laminator and you have a sealed and long-lasting item!

Also, if you do choose to laminate, stick little self-adhesive velcro dots on the laminated pieces so your kids can attach and reattach easily. This eliminates the use of any messy glue!

Below is what will be included in your download (see the bottom of the page for actual download instructions):

Need a little guidance? This is what our bunny rabbit looks like when he’s all put together. A little cutie, I must say!

Format: This printable comes in a PDF format and prints out on 8.5″x11″ standard size letter paper. Making it easy to print on any printer!

Need some craft supplies?

Amazon has always been my go-to for most of my office and craft supplies. If you print a lot of printables and spend  time coloring, gluing and adding some extra jazz to them, our list of supplies can help!

I’ve split the list up into a basic list and a fancier list if you’re going to put a little more pizazz into your printables.
