Make a chick mask

Making a chick mask is the perfect family craft to do this spring to celebrate all the new life being born at this time of year.

This is a particularly popular activity with primary-aged kids, but older kids can enjoy it too – how colourful and creative can they make their chick mask?

What you will need:

  • Printer
  • A4 card
  • Colouring crayons, pencils or pens
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • String or elastic

How to make your mask:

  1. Click on the link below and print out the mask on an A4 sheet of card
  2. Colour in the chick
  3. Cut out the template including the eyes (but not the beak!)
  4. Use a hole punch to make a hole on each side of the mask
  5. Thread a piece of string or elastic through the holes and tie off to make the head strap
