Are you looking for a fun Easter chicks craft idea? This cute baby chicks kids art project is made by stamping wine corks into yellow paint. It’s the perfect kids activity for the rainy (or even snowy) days leading up to Easter.
Not only is this Spring chicks craft fun, but it is something that will make a great DIY Easter decoration to display in the classroom or at home.
This is a great Easter craft idea because it allows for creativity and is something that takes a bit of time. If you wanted, you could also use brown paint to make chubby little bunnies. Have fun with it! There are so many fun things you could do that are Easter- or Spring-themed.
The kids will love using the wine corks to make these cute little Easter chicks and you’ll love having the finished project to use as a decoration around the house or classroom throughout the Spring season. You could do the craft using construction paper, but I would suggest using cardstock or even a canvas if you would like the finished project to hold up better and stay in good enough condition to display year after year.
If you want something that kids of all ages could work on, this Easter chicks craft is a great choice. Younger children will need some assistance with the cutting and adding the details to the chicks, but they can still enjoy stamping those wine corks to make the chick’s bodies.

Easter Chicks Craft Instructions
Dip one end of a wine cork in yellow paint. You can dab off some of the extra on a paper towel if you wish. Dab the end of the wine cork with paint on it, onto the canvas. For every chick that you would like to make on the canvas, make a circle with the wine cork.
Be sure to space out your circles so that you have room to make the rest of the chick’s bodies.
While the paint is drying, cut out small diamond shapes from the orange cardstock with scissors. Fold each diamond shape in half to form a beak. Make one beak for each chick you will have on your canvas.
Once the paint has dried, draw on two eyes in each circle with a black marker, and draw two legs with little feet coming out of the bottom of each stamped circle.
Use a paintbrush to paint on small wing shapes, one on each side of each wine cork circle on your canvas.
Glue on a beak to the front of each wine cork circle, just below the eyes.
Allow paint and glue to dry before displaying your awesome Easter chicks decoration.
