While the paint is drying, download the PDF templates I have attached above and print it out. Cut out the patterns (wings, beak, belly, and comb) from the template. Trace and cut them out of craft papers, and use a lighter shade of yellow to cut out the belly. Use a colored marker pen to fill in the eyes for the easter chick craft.

Tips For Paper Cup Craft Activities:
- If you are going to paint the paper cup, the first thing you need to do is prepare your space. Gather some old newspapers and lay them on the table or surface you are going to work on. This helps to keep things clean and you won’t get any paint stains on your carpet or furniture.
- If you are working with a child it’s always important to use non-toxic paint.
- Acrylic paints are better than regular watercolors. Acrylic paint is heavier so it covers the base very well, also it dries down very well and the paint doesn’t smudge.
- To have a nice color-covered base you might need to do more than just one coat. You have to wait for the first boat to try down completely before applying the second coat.
That’s it for today, I will be back with more tips on the next content.
