With Easter there are so many ways you can unleash your kid's creativity and it can go way beyond coloring Easter eggs. So grab any paper tube you have laying around, a few craft supplies and let's make an adorable little chick to look over all the Easter eggs you will color.

3 Things To Make This Week With Blitsy - Week of February 29th
Super Simple Paper Tube Easter Chick Craft for Kids
Shop this Project
- paper roll
- yellow paint
- sponge brush
- wiggly eyes
- orange construction paper
First color the paper tube with yellow paint. Sponge brushes are perfect for coloring paper rolls, you will have the whole roll colored in no time. Allow the paint to dry completely.
Once the color is completely dry cut the roll to 3 pieces, each in different width, the smallest one for wings, middle one for head and largest one for body. Cut the smallest one so that you get one long strip. Trim off the edges on both sides to get an oval shape.
With white school glue, glue together the head and the body part (you can help yourself with paper clips to keep both parts in place while they dry, it will make things super easy). Once the glue dries a bit, add a dab of glue to the bottom of the head part and glue on the wings (the smallest strip of paper). Let dry completely.
While you wait for the glue to dry, cut the heart shape and beak shape out of orange construction paper. Now you've got a pair of chick feet and a beak (you can draw two black spots on the beak).
All that's left to do is to glue on the heart shape feet at the bottom, stick on the beak and add two wiggly eyes.
All done, your chick is now ready to watch over the Easter eggs!
