Cheepy Chick Pop-Up Card
You Will Need:
- A large sheet of card or heavy paper
- Colouring pens
- Optional items for decoration: craft eyes, feathers, patterned or painted paper or card, ribbon, glue, etc.
How to Make a Pop up Easter Card craft
Fold the card in half, then in half again.
Open the card out and cut a small line close to the centre of the page.
Fold back a triangle of card from above and below the cut. Bend each triangle back and forth several times to reinforce the folds.
Fold the card back over again, with the triangle part on the inside. Then pull out and pinch the triangles to form the chick’s beak.
Draw your chick around the beak. You can glue on craft eyes and feathers to bring your chick to life. You can also add a personal message inside the card, perhaps coming from a speech bubble from the chick’s beak!
Decorate the front of your card. We cut an Easter egg shape from a kindy painting and decorated it with ribbon and other craft leftovers.
You Will Need:
- Some drinking straws (or bamboo skewers)
- An egg carton
- Drawing pins (optional)
How to Make a Bunch of Flowers from an Egg Carton
Cut out an equal number of pointy cones and egg holders from the egg carton.
Paint the egg box parts. Yellow for the holders and orange for the cones works well, but imaginative kids can let their creativity loose! (If you do not have coloured straws, you can paint the straws green too.)
Glue the cones into the holders to create the flower heads and leave to dry.
Pin or glue the straws onto the flower heads.
Add a cuppa and HCB for the perfect surprise breakfast in bed!
