This easy craft foam Easter craft is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers. I love crafts, that my little one can do all on his own without me having to help. Not only does it help with his creativity, but he also feels all grown-up, when he doesn’t need Mommy’s help.
Since Easter is coming up, we have a few of these crafts in mind, all using craft foam. I absolutely love craft foam because you can use it for so many different crafts and it is very easy to use, even for little kids. We have craft foam sheets in all kinds of different colors, as well as letters, pre-cut shapes, and even themed foam stickers for several different holidays and occasions, like Halloween and Christmas.
We chose to make an Easter chicken out of craft foam for our simple Easter craft.
What you need:
- 1 Sheet of yellow and orange craft foam
- A variety of pre-cut craft foam shapes
- Sheet of paper or cardstock
- 2 Wiggle Eyes
- Draw a circle for the head and a bigger oval for the body on the yellow craft foam and cut them out.
- Glue them to your sheet of paper or cardstock.
- The pre-cut shapes we had were mainly circles and tear-drops, which was perfect for this craft. Pick two big tear-drops and glue them to the body of your chicken as wings. If you don’t have pre-cut shapes that work well for this project, just cut them out of your sheet of craft foam.
- Next, we cut a triangle out of the orange sheet of craft foam, for the beak and glued it on the head.
- Cut out two little trapezoids, then cut out two small triangles out of the trapezoids. Now the trapezoids look a little bit like the letter “M”. We used them as feet.
- Glue two wiggle eyes to the head and your chicken is finished.
Now let your little one go crazy with the rest of the shapes and see what kind of decorations he can come up with to make his chicken look extra pretty. We used more tear-drops and little circles to give our chicken some “feathers”.
