Follow the step-by-step instructions below

Step 1:

Print our mobile paper chicken doll template. We highly recommend printing on cardstock, the heaviest paper your printer can handle. Lamination of the template parts (after you color and cut them) is also an option and we highly recommend it.

Step 2

Color all the designs. If you are doing this craft for Easter, make the eggs very colorful.

Step 3

Make small holes. We recommend using a skewer to punch two holes in the body of the doll and two holes in each wing. Older children can make the holes themselves, while younger children will need adult assistance.

Step 4

Cut out the designs.

Step 5

Thread the yarn through the outer hole on the wing. A plastic needle is a handy tool, since we didn’t have one we improvised and made one out of paper.

Step 6

Continue pushing that thread through the outer hole on the remaining wing.

Step 7

Push the nail through the hole in the chicken body, the open side facing the back of the chicken body.

Step 8

Place the wing on top of the body, with the nail through the hole inside the wing. Flare the open ends to secure the nail.

Repeat with the remaining wing.

Step 8

Glue a craft stick to the back of the chicken body. We used both glue and tape to make sure it really held.

Step 9

Position the wings so that they are “loose as if they are falling”. Tie the yarn together.

Step 10

Enjoy the game with the moving paper chicken.
