Capture the size of your child's tiny handprints while making this great farm craft for preschoolers. Your child's handprints are the wings and comb on our chicken craft and paper plates make up the rest! Enjoy!

What you'll need:

  • Big paper plate
  • Small paper plate
  • Orange, red and white construction paper
  • Printable chicken template
  • 2 googly eyes
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Scotch tape
How to make your Handprint Chicken Craft:
  1. Turn the big paper plate upside down. Leave the small paper plate right side (food side) up. Use scotch tape (and glue if you wish) and attach the small paper plate to the large one to make a head and body for your chicken.
  2. Trace your child's handprint onto red construction paper. Make sure they have their fingers spread apart. Cut out their handprint and glue it to the top of the small paper plate.
  3. Trace your child's handprint onto white construction paper. This time make sure their fingers are close together because you need these handprints to look like wings. Cut out the handprints and glue one onto each side of the large paper plate.
  4. Print our template and cut out the pieces. Trace the beak and feet onto orange construction paper and cut them out. Glue the feet to the bottom of the craft, and glue the beak to the small paper plate.
  5. Glue on the googly eyes.
  6. Trace the peanut shaped piece onto red construction paper. Cut it out and glue it so it slightly covers one edge of the beak.
