Is there anything cuter than a tiny baby chick? They’re one of the most adorable baby animals. Those cute little balls of puff are very lovable. My children just adore baby chicks! When our local farm hatches chicks, my kids insist on visiting as much as possible until they get older and it is getting harder and harder not to bring a few home with us.
This Easter season, I’ve decided to create baby chick coloring pages just in time for your Easter celebrations. They’re the perfect icebreaker for the table at Easter dinner. They also work well as a way to busy excited children before an egg hunt in the backyard.
Don’t be afraid to break out some unique decorating supplies like craft feathers, pom poms, or glitter to add to the fun.
These festive yet simple Easter coloring sheets are an excellent way to squeeze in extra quality time with your kids. Talk about the day’s events while you color or ask questions and spend time listening to your little ones tell you about themselves, their day, and their dreams.

Planning to use this Easter chick coloring page in the classroom? It’s a great fit for teaching toddlers, preschoolers, or even kindergartners. Here are some great ideas for extending the lesson:
– Craft after story-time. Use these adorable Easter themed coloring pages as a fun hands-on activity after reading a story. With toddlers, I recommend Where, Oh Where, Is Rosie’s Chick? By Pat Hutchins. It’s filled with colorful images and easy for little ones to follow along.
– Practice fine motor skills with music. Coloring is excellent for building the fine motor skills young learners need for handwriting. Skills like pencil grip and control are built in a fun and easy way.
Listening to music while coloring is a great way to help students focus while having fun and learning. Choose a fun counting song like Chicken Count by Mary Jo Huff or build music appreciation skills with a classical piece like On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring by Delius. The piece by Delius also includes real bird calls in the music, which is magical and surprising for children.
– Build your own baby chick too! Don’t just color your own Easter chick pages, check out our build a chick craft. You can have a day filled with baby chick fun as your littles build their own Easter chicks with easy chick templates and decorate however they like.
As always, be sure to include lots of fun elements for decorating so children can explore different materials and practice thinking creatively.
– Field trip follow up activity. These coloring sheets would also be a good follow up activity after a field trip to the farm or petting zoo. After spending some time learning about real baby chicks, children can color their own Easter chick sheet. It’s a good way to connect what they have seen and heard at the farm with their own ideas about baby chicks.
