Kayleigh's Crafts - Make Your Own Chick Collage


For Easter we are making this adorable chick collage!

To make this yourself, have a look at our YouTube video or follow this step-by-step guide.  

You will need:
  • Chick Template (Download here)
  • Scissors
  • Something to colour with (pens, pencils, paint etc)
  • Glue (PVA or Stick)
  • Tissue Paper

Step 1:

Download and print the chick template. 

If you're unable to print the template then draw out some shapes like the ones below: 

  • A large egg shape to be your chick's body
  • x2 large oval 'sausage shapes' for the wings
  • x2 smaller oval 'sausage shapes' for the feet
  • x2 circles for the eyes
  • x1 triangle for the beak

Step 2:

Colour in the beak, feet and wings. The eyes can be left white or can be coloured in. 

Once these shapes are coloured in, cut them out and put them to one side.

Step 3:

Take a small piece of tissue paper and scrunch it up into a small, rough ball. 

Glue a small part inside your chick body, make sure not to glue the whole body as your glue will dry up too quickly! 

Glue down your tissue ball and repeat until the whole chick body is covered.

Step 4:

Take the beak, feet, eyes and wings you cut out earlier and place them in position over your chick body. Once you're happy with the placement, glue each piece down on the top of your tissue paper. 

When you're done... 

Have a think about what other things you can use for your collage. See what you have around the house, could you use magazines or newspaper? Ribbon or pom poms? 

Instead of tissue paper, we used yellow feathers for this chick:  


We would love to see your finished crafts!
