Crafting with your kids is always an opportunity for fun things any time of year, but we especially love doing children’s DIY projects around different holidays because those crafts always have the themes that are the most fun to do! Easter is a particular favourite of ours because, in addition to the holiday itself, it’s also a great excuse to celebrate spring and the change of the weather seasons. Making adorable baby animal crafts is one of our very favourite ways to get the kids into the spirit of the season!
Check out these 15 adorable baby chick themed crafts that your kids will be super excited to make and that you can use as cute homemade Easter decor afterwards for when you have family over for Easter dinner!
If you’ve ever read anything from our site before then you probably know that we’re huge fans of crafts that upcycle something in their DIY process. Even the smallest and most disposable household wares can be saved form the trash by crafting with your kids! These adorable little hatchlings are no exception since their shells are made from repurposed egg carton cups. See how they’re made on First Palette.
