Easter Card with a Chicken Hatched from an Egg Step by Step
Making the cover and the frame of the card
You will need two pieces of rectangular cardboard, in this case, of orange and blue color. The sizes are arbitrary; it all depends on the desired size of the postcard. It will be easier for the children to work with a large card, since it has fewer small parts. For example, take the whole sheet A4 or its half.
Fold both segments in half, cut off the orange part. You can cut off not in a straight line, but any original: make small or large waves, zigzags.
Fold the orange cardboard to your side and draw the lines for the future cuts. These are two short parallel lines in the middle, and two on both sides, only their length should be longer. Subsequently, the extreme parts will come forward and the shell on them will be ahead of the chicken, and not somewhere near.
Cut all the lines and fold the strip up.
Open the cardboard and direct the strips in the middle, gently bending all the folds. Close the postcard so that everything will fall into place.
Glue the orange cardboard onto the blue one, carefully fitting it in the middle fold. Again, open and close the card, with the correct execution of all stages, these actions will not be difficult. The cover is ready.
Making the chicken with the egg and the rest of the decor
Draw two circles on the yellow cardboard: one smaller, which will be the head of a chicken, and the other one should be bigger for the body. The circles must intersect in order to form a complete character.
For convenience, the middle lines can be erased, and then cut only at the extreme. Cut the chicken, and at the same time cut a diamond-shaped beak, a small heart for a fur coat from a red paper, a tail from a yellow cardboard.
Glue all the details, as well as the ready or made from paper eyes, and you get such a funny chicken.
Glue it on the middle coaster in a postcard.
Now proceed to the creation of eggs or cracked shells. To do this, draw and cut a small egg from white cardboard.
Cut it in half, but not in a straight line, but in uneven zigzags.
Glue the halves of the shell on the extreme coasters, if desired, sign and decorate the rest of the area with flowers, butterflies. That is all, the Easter card with chicken hatched from the egg is ready.
