Make A Handprint Chick


This is a great craft for younger kids, who will love getting their hands messy! The chick makes a great farmyard craft and is also brilliant for Easter.

You can make a hand shape in two ways, the most popular option is to make a handprint with paint. The other, less messy option is to draw around your hand first and then fill in with paint or colour it in with felt pens.

You could try making other birds, maybe try a peacock using colourful feathers?

How to Make It
  1. There are two ways to make a hand shape. You could paint your hand and make a handprint onto a piece of white card or paper.
  2. For a less messy option, you could draw round your hand, colour it in and then cut it out. Card is better than paper for both of these methods as it won’t wrinkle when the paint dries.
  3. Once you have your hand shape, you can turn it into a chick! We recommend sticking the wobbly eyes on first, as then you can work out the proportions of the rest of the chick. Obviously the size of wobbly eyes that you use will depend on the size of the hand. As an indication, our hand measures 16cm tall and we used 15mm eyes.
  4. Then you can add feathers to make wings and cut out any features. We used orange foam as it’s sturdier but you could also use card or paper.
  5. Finally, embellish your chick with a felt tip pen. You can now attach a jumbo lolly stick to make a puppet or maybe a magnet!
