Chickens are a very important birds, they give us a majority of our eggs as well as a good portion of the protein that we eat every day. Chickens lay eggs on a daily basis and are very important to our farming industry. Hens are the female chicken and Roosters are the male chicken. Roosters have been known to crow at the break of dawn. For many farmers, roosters are their alarm clocks...and this was definitely the way farmers used to wake up in past centuries.
Sometimes when hens lay eggs, little baby chicks are born. Little baby chicks are a good sign that Spring is coming...which is why many times people celebrate Easter by giving their children little baby chicks to foster. On this page, we have listed many exciting chicken crafts for you and your kids to make.
Use a half-filled balloon, a chocolate candy egg, or a Plastic Easter Egg for the chicken's body. Whatever you choose, it will need to fit inside a cupcake paper liner. Print out a chicken head outline here or draw your own chicken head. Cut this chicken head from felt or colored paper. Cut it double as seen above in figure 1 and then fill a little cotton inside the head to fill it out, as pictured in figure 1. You can glue or sew it shut. Paste in place on the chicken's body. Now cut 2 wings and a tail from felt or decorative paper, as seen in figure 2. Paste in place on the hen's body.

Fill the cupcake cup with small colored candied eggs if this is for a treat or cut out tiny little eggs from felt or colored paper if this isn't for a party treat. Then set the hen / chicken on the nest, as pictured in figure 4.
