Farm Animal Craft Project

Farm animal projects are one of our favorite activities in our house since we are actually living on a farm.

Now since the Winter is almost over and all the holiday decorations are gone it is time for some spring fun.

Therefore I decided to start up this new season with this fun chicken handprint craft for my kids.

This wonderful spring craft for kids is especially a big hit for toddlers and preschoolers. It is perfectly manageable in a classroom setting.

Painting with hands brings a lot of joy and fun. It helps children to explore paint with their own fingers and makes it the perfect sensory activity.

Especially around Easter, chicken projects are rather popular. Also, why not use the opportunity to take a book, and learn about farm animals, chickens, or Easter traditions? The kids will love it!

But let’s take a look now at this easy chicken craft project:
