The new baby chicks arrived in the mail last week, so to celebrate I thought I would round up these 20 chick and chicken crafts for kids. Since it is chick season here on the farm, all my thoughts have been taken over by chicks, even when it comes to arts and crafts for the kids!
Chicks Arrive By Mail
Ever since we moved to this property we’ve been planning to order chicks from a hatchery and having them shipped via the post office. We were so excited to pick out some different breeds that are not sold in local feed and farm stores.
We ended up getting 14 egg laying chicks and 20 meat birds. They all arrived right on time, safe and sound. Actually they were very loud when the arrived. The sound of their peeps was deffening as we were getting them settled into their brooders in the chicken coop.
Raising young chicks for eggs and for meat has definitely been a learning experience, but we are well on our way to a dozen fresh eggs a day and a freezer full of homegrown chicken.
Chicken Art for Kids
These funky chickens are just too cool and creative! I am planning on having my kids make their own funky chickens to hang up on the wall in the kitchen.
Another artistic chicken project are these watercolor shape birds. Kids draw what looks like a chicken to me, then fills in he body with shapes and finally paints it with watercolors.
I just love these funky chicken collages made with recycled materials! This brilliant art project is so creative and unique to each artist.

Here is another project I came across that was inspired by Picasso. Apparently Picasso like to draw roosters. This rooster art project explores cubism, a style of art from the early 20th century.
