Easter Chick Thumb Prints

Why not have a go at making some of these gorgeous thumbprint chicks! All you need are some yellow poster pain, scraps of orange paper or felt (or an orange pen) and a black pen. Children love making thumbprints, and even the youngest children will enjoy trying this with your help!

Easter Chick Thumb Prints

You could use the chicks to decorate Easter cards and gift tags for friends and family, or go into production and make some wrapping paper!

Pour a little yellow paint onto a pad of folded newspaper or a paper plate and gently dip the child's thumb into it. We found that the second print was usually the best. Practice a few times until you get the hang of it.

When your thumbprints are dry, add details with a black and orange pen (or cut snips of orange paper or felt for the beaks). Older children may enjoy adding speech bubbles with "cheep cheep" or other chick-like noises inside!
