Easter Craft: Chickadee Card

Chickadee Card

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

When it comes to hatching one of these Easter cards, the egg decidedly comes before the chicken.


  • White poster board
  • Yellow construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Colored markers
  • Glue
  • Paper fastener


To make the eggshell, cut a pair of matching ovals, one for the front and one for the back, from the white poster board (the shells shown here are 5 inches high).

Cut a simple chick from the yellow construction paper, making sure that it will fit within the dimensions of the egg. Use the colored markers to draw on eyes and a beak.

Center the chick on one of the white ovals and glue it in place.

Cut off the upper third of the other oval with a zigzag line that looks like a crack. Glue the bottom piece onto the chick, matching up the edges with the back oval, as pictured.

Lay the top piece of the cracked shell over the chick's head, but do not glue it in place. Instead, use the paper fastener to attach a lower corner to the rest of the egg (it should work like a hinge).

Finally, add your Easter greeting to the front or the back of the egg.
