Chick comes out of egg - dyeing with toddlers

This fun Easter craft is suitable for the little ones. Especially carefully tearing the egg open the toddlers like to do! Make a small cut at the top of the egg to make a start. Are you with multiple children? Then let the chicks “hatch” in turn so that the children can enjoy each other's chicks.

First draw a large egg with marker on solid white paper or thin cardboard. (If paper is too thin, the paper will quickly bulge from the wet paint). Then let the child deliciously paint and scrape with yellow paint. It doesn't have to be inside the lines!



  • Put (green) surface paper ready and cut out the beaks of orange paper
  • Let the toddlers stick the beaks and put the eyelets with marker or paint. Of course, you can also stick wobbly eyes!
  • Cut an egg out of white paper just slightly larger than the yellow chick egg
  • Lubricate glue on the edge of the white egg and stick the white egg over it
  • Make a cut to indicate the beginning of the opening.
  • Keep the camera at hand and shoot the surprising faces!
  • Happy Easter!


These chicks above are made by the toddlers on host parent shelter De Boskabouters from Maarssenbroek. Aren't they cute and super cute?
