Not only will painting with forks make this activity more manageable for little ones but it’s also an excellent sensory opportunity for them too. Plus, when done with supervision, it can unleash artistic creativity without making too much of a mess!
- Plastic Fork
- Yellow Tulip Puffy Paint
- Loose Craft Glitter
- Light Blue Cardstock Paper
- Orange Cardstock paper
- White Cardstock Paper
- Broken Egg Printable
- Color Printer
- Paper Scissors
- School Glue
- Large Googly Eyes
- First things first – download and print out the broken egg printable on white paper. You need ONE print per yellow chick craft.
- Go ahead and use scissors to trim out the egg design.
- Discard excess paper and set aside the paper cutout till later.
- Next up – squirt several circles of YELLOW paint, in the center of your light blue cardstock paper. You don’t need a lot at first. Start off with the size of a quarter and gradually add more after your child starts the next painting step.
- Now have children take their fork – which is their “paintbrush” to spread the paint all around the piece of paper, to make the feathers of their baby chick. Just make sure they keep the paint on the paper but they can move it anywhere and in any design/shape/angle they like.
- Once they are done creating the body of the chick, go ahead and sprinkle some loose craft glitter on top of the wet paint, to really make it shine!
- Finally – the last step of this fork painted chick craft. Glue your cardstock egg piece towards the body of the painted design. Follow that up with an orange triangle beak nose and wiggle eyes to the center of the painted piece.
- And that’s it! At this point you are done BUT you can add other embellishments if you choose, to give it your special touch!
- When done, set aside to let it dry completely before displaying proudly!
- BTW – this craft can be done in different colors so don’t feel limited by our example pictures!
