I originally did these wooden chick egg craft for Little London’s April/May edition this year. It is such a sweet craft that I just had to share it with you all. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to do it will my charges, but I am hoping that we will get to do it next Easter.

Make sure you follow my Easter Board on Pinterest for more ideas, and don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

You will need:

  •  Wooden Eggs
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Sharpies
  • Paintbrushes

On the top half of the eggs paint them a yellow colour and let it dry. I always tell my charges to use thin layers of paint as it dries much quicker that way. Plus you can do lots of layers that way.

Once it has dried paint the bottom half of the egg white. Try to give it a zig-zag line where the white meets the yellow as this part will be the shell.

Then leave it to dry.

Take a black sharpie and draw on the face of your chick and outline where the shell and chick should be.

When you are finished you should have this really adorable little chick.

Pin for later:
