How to Make a Hen and Chick Paper Circle Craft – Easter Card Idea

What you need:

  • card base (we think green works really well)
  • yellow construction paper for chickens
  • white construction paper for hens
  • red paper
  • orange paper
  • black marker
  • glue
  • drag
  • Optional: large and medium size paper circle puncher

Step-by-step instructions

Start by punching or cutting two circles. A smaller yellow one and a larger white one.

We will start with the yellow circle (the chick). Cut it into a circle, cutting a line down the middle of the circle.

Fold one quarter of the circle (next to the slit) towards the bottom (see image below).

Do the same with the white circle.

If you want the hen and chick to look at each other, fold the opposite quarter down.

Glue the round chicken and round chicken onto the card base.

Cut two small triangles from the orange paper and glue them on the chick and hen as shown in the picture below.

Alternatively, cut a crown from red cardstock and glue it to the hen’s head.

Use a black marker to draw eyes on the chicks and hens (you can also use small bulging eyes).

Also, draw a pair of legs for the chick and the hen.
