This fun easter card can be made by children of all ages but younger children will need help to assemble the card.
Take an A4 piece of card in a colour of your choice. The children can colour or write a message inside the card.
Cut out an egg shape piece of thick paper and cut a zigzag line across the top, decorate the two pieces of egg, either by colouring or collage. Attach the bottom of the egg to the bottom of the card by gluing the edges and bottom only, leaving a small gap at the bottom to fit a lolly pop stick behind the egg.
Cut out a chick small enough to fit into your egg, and decorate with yellow feathers and other collage materials of your choice. Glue the top of the egg onto the top of the chicks head and then glue a lolly pop stick or thick piece of card to the bottom of the chick. Slide the lolly pop stick down through the bottom of the egg and through the hole that has been left.
The children have now created a fun eater egg that they can enjoy moving and watch the chick as it hatches. This activity also lends itself to other activities and discussions were children discover how chicks hatch.
