How to use the template:

The first step is to print out the coloring page template onto white printer paper or cardstock. Personally, I love using cardstock as it gives it more durability. However, regular printer paper is perfect fine as well

Next, grab some art supplies such as crayons, markers or colored pencils and begin coloring. You can color in the chick and egg the typical colors you see, or you can feel free to get as creative as you’d like and choose any color combination you would like. The possibilities are endless!

After all of the pieces of the chick and egg have been colored in, you can start cutting everything out using scissors.

If your kids are able to safely use scissors on their own, this would be an excellent time for them to work on their fine motor skills and scissor skills. If not, they can still work on the next step.

After the parts of the chick have been cut out, get a piece of colored construction paper and begin gluing the bird together. There is a small reference drawing at the bottom of the template page to look back at if you need any help knowing where all of the pieces are supposed to go.

Now you have a fun Spring craft that is perfect for decorating the house or classroom this upcoming season!

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
