Glue the chicken’s head to the thumb of your child’s handprint.
Glue the other features of the chicken onto the right place.
Place the feet to the bottom and back of the handprint.

3. Easy Spring Craft for Kids
After making this free printable chicken craft template, we thought it would be fun to create our own baby chick crafts.
Gather all the simple crafting materials such as paper plate, paper cup, construction paper, pipe cleaner, craft foam and more.
Have your child paint the paper cups yellow and set it aside to dry.
Draw the chicken’s comb or simple heart shape onto red paper and cut it out.
Cut the beak and feet out from the orange craft foam.
Once the painted paper cup dries, glue a pair of googly eyes.
Next, glue the beak, comb and feet onto the right places.
For the chicken wings, we use yellow feathers and glue it onto the sides of the paper cup.
My little one wants to carry their chicken crafts; thus, we punch a pair of small holes in the cup.
Tie a ribbon or pipe cleaner onto the pair of holes on the cup.
Kids will have so much fun filling their paper cup chicken crafts with candies, small toys or flowers.
