Easter Chick card with pop-out beaks are so fun to make and they look fab. Who doesn’t love Spring and Chicks certainly signify Spring and Easter is on its way and this super simple card is great to make with kids of all ages.
We are huge fans of homemade cards and these Easter Chick card with pop-out beak really hit the mark with my boys. They are really easy to make, but they couldn’t resist opening and closing the cards to get the beaks moving and the chicks talking!

How to make your Chick card with pop-out beak
We started by cutting out our chicks we decided to give ours wings and feet, but an oval chick would look fab and you could use feathers as wings.
We then coloured in the chick’s feet and hair before folding it in half. Once you have folded your chick in half from head to feet then you need to make a small snip, which will become your beak.
Fold back both of the corners that you have cut and score before opening the fold and “popping” them beak out. We then coloured out beak in orange.
Then add your googly eyes. We then stuck the chick into the centre of the card using a glue dot on each wing. Glue dots are great for this as they are instant fix and so not need drying time.
We stuck Happy Easter in letters inside the card. Microdots are great for this if you have older children or the blue tack glue pen as it is very precise.
Don’t worry if you don’t have Happy Easter letters as you could just write that in.
We wanted the chick to be on the inside of the card, so that as you opened and closed the car the chicks beak opened and closed, so we added a cracked egg on to the front of the card, using glue dots.
Do you send Easter cards?
What a lovely and pretty card, I love the way the beak pops open.Will book mark to do with my neice on her next viist.
Ah! This takes me back! I remember making one of these at school once, and we enjoyed flapping the card about to make the chick talk too!
What a cute idea! We don’t tend to send Easter cards, maybe we should start!
I have fond memories of making these in school , such great fun to make
Very creative, Jen, what a fun way to make Easter cards with the kids instead of buying!xx
We don’t normally send Easter Cards but I’m sure my kids would love making these, it can be our craft for next weekend.
Aww, this is so cute! I remember making these sorts of pop up cards when my boy was little. Lovely Easter project.
These are so adorable, we used to make them as kids all the time at school and Sunday school. They looks so adorable 🙂
Takes me back to when my daughters were small. They used to love making cards x
Jen you never cease to amaze me with your inventive ideas. These look so easy to make – super fun.
They look like great fun to make!
Aaaw my two used to love making cards like these – we usedto make monsters with big pop out mouths x
I used to love making Easter cards with the little pop out beaks as a child. I was the only one in the class to be able to do it and everyone wanted me to make them one. I was popular 😉 I must give these ones a go with the kids. Thanks hon x
Oh this is great Jen, I especially love the pop out beak! We made some Easter cards recently but cut a diamond shape and folded it in half. We’ll have to try this although your craft skills are far better than mine. We only normally send Easter cards to immediate family although POD’s teacher would probably like one too.
I love this what a cute and clever idea. I really need to get more creative with little girl as she loves making things, I may well have to give this a go with her. xx
