A little egg carton chick to hide some chocolate Easter eggs = Cuteness overload. Seriously. And while these egg carton Easter chicks are perfect for kids to put together, adults will have just as much fun helping – at least I did. And the best part of all is that you probably already have all of the supplies needed for this one.
Supplies Needed: Paper egg carton, yellow paint, tape, colored paper, feathers (optional), black marker.
1) Cut two egg holder pieces (do these have a technical name?) from the carton. 2) Paint. 3) Attach the two pieces together with a piece of tape to create a hinge. 4) Use colored paper to make the beak, feet, and wings (or use feathers for wings, as shown). 5) Draw on a pair of eyes. 6) Fill with candy and give to your best peep.
Happy Easter crafting, DIY’ers!
