This Paper Loop Chick is simple and fun project for kids to make with some basic craft supplies. Easter is a great time to make chick, lamb and duck crafts to decorate your Easter table and the kids will love to be a part of it.

Trivia: Araucanas are a breed of chicken originally developed in Chile. They lay light bluish or greenish eggs, often resembling dyed Easter eggs.

 

Here’s what you need:  cardstock, origami paper (or other colorful paper), stapler, glue, scissors, elastic (or ribbon), and the Paper Bunny Ears template

Print out Paper bunny ears template.  Trace onto cardstock.IMG_1016Cut out.IMG_1019Cut inner part of the ear from origami paper and glue.IMG_1021Cut approximately nine inches of elastic (this size worked pretty well for most kids and adults, but I did change sizes some for the smaller heads).  I used foldover elastic which I got from a fab Pick your Plum sale a while back.  The foldover elastic made the ears nice and soft and comfy to wear, but any elastic would work.  You could also use ribbon and tie in the back.  Staple elastic onto bunny ears.IMG_1094And there, you’ve got some super cute little bunny ears…IMG_1206
