We always keep a stack of paper plates in our “Making Box” for splodging paint onto for easy clean up when we are getting arty. Paper plates are also very handy to turn into all sorts of fun things in arts and crafts activities. We made some super cute baby farm animals recently for a guest post over on Mess for Less. And this week we have had our paper plates out again.
Paper Plate Craft for Kids: How to make Crazy Chicks

- Paper plates
- Orange and yellow paper
- Googly eyes
- Coloured feathers
- Paint all over a paper plate with yellow paint.
2. Cut out a circle of yellow paper to use for the chick’s face. We traced around a cup for this and cut it out.
Chicks are traditionally yellow, but hey sometimes it’s fun to do things a little differently to see what effect it makes. My kids loved picking out the different colours and it doubled up as a great colour recognition practice for my toddler as well. Our paper plate crazy chicks will take pride of place, when we put up our Easter decorations when the kids break up from school.

The simpler the better when dealing with 3 kids of different ages! We had great fun though making these which is the main thing.
These are just SO cute! Love the independent art work too!
Thanks. The best part of it is seeing how they make it their own.
