Chick in an Egg

chick in an egg craft made from recycled egg carton

Easy kids craft made from recycled egg cartons and pompoms.  Fun for children to paint.


  • Egg carton
  • 1 ½" yellow pompom
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Two 5mm googly eyes
  • Paint - whatever type you  have on hand - watercolors, acrylic, or tempera paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Scrap of orange felt
  1. Cut one individual cup off of an egg carton.
  2. Paint the entire cup. Let dry.  I used acrylic paint on the sample but watercolors are better for young artists.  Watercolors give a different look but it too looks great.
  3. Glue the pompom inside the cup.
  4. Cut a small diamond out of orange felt for the beak.
  5. Glue the beak on the pompom by folding the diamond in half and pushing the center of the beak into the pompom.
  6. Glue on the eyes.
