How lovely, Spring is in the air, Easter is around the corner and the sun is shining! Days like these are so welcome after a long cold Winter! To celebrate we’ve made these super cute EASTER CHICK HATS. They’re perfect for wearing on your Easter egg hunt or to brighten up any day!
These chick headbands are so much fun for kids to make and wear. They have a cute round chick on the front with an open and close beak. The sides of the chick crowns are decorated with some eggs. There are patterned whole eggs and also cracked eggs which can be cut in half to look as if they’ve hatched. Of course if you prefer you can leave the eggs off altogether if you just want a plain chick hat.
Our spring chick crowns are easy to make with the printable template, that comes in full colour and also black and white so that you can decorate it in any way you choose. We used marker pens but wax crayons, paints or pencils would work just as well too.
This is a lovely Easter craft if you’re looking for an easy Easter Bonnet idea. They’re also great to go with a Spring, farmyard or chick life-cycle study unit.
Don’t worry about where you are in the world because the template comes in both US and UK spellings and paper sizes.

Make A Chick Hat Step by Step

2 – If you are using the B/W template colour it in.
3 – Cut out the template pieces and glue the feet onto the bottom of the front headband, at either side of the rounded body.
4 – Glue the wings onto the front headband, one at either side of the rounded body.
5 – Fold the beak in half and glue it on, along with the eyes.
6a – Glue an egg or two on to the headband at either side of the chick’s body.
6b – You can use the whole eggs or cut the cracked eggs in half.
7 – Staple the back headband onto the front headband to make a wearable loop. If you need a bigger band then add in the extension section.
