Propeller Easter Egg Craft for Kids with chick you can see inside!


Really interesting way to make an Easter egg with hidden chick. It is a little hard to imagine from the parts, so make a sample if you have time.

You can opt out of using the chick if you prefer not to use it.

Discussion points:
The Easter Egg is a time honored symbol of the resurrection. New Life in Christ.

Technically, the egg is not an object that appeared dead and then came to life again- as a perennial plant may be.( A perennial plant "Dies off" in the summer or fall and sprouts anew in the spring".)
if anyone know of a flower that does this.(Possible answers include spring tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, crocus, summer blue bells, phlox, black-eyed-susan's, and hundreds of other perennial flowers.)
The egg is however a visible, tangible sign that a new life is coming. ( A baby)

(Show real egg if you have it) To the casual observer- someone just looking at an egg, the egg isn't living at all. Some eggs - like supermarket eggs - grocery store eggs - are not intended to ever get chicks. They are intended for eating.

- What does the inside of a raw egg look like? (get several opinions)

Babies of any kind are God's miracles. People's babies, animal's babies and even baby chicks. God gives life.

YOU CAN PEEK INSIDE THE EGG YOU WILL MAKE AND SEE THE CHICK!

2 VERSIONS: PRE-COLORED or TO COLOR

Grades 1-5 (6)
Easter craft and activity and discussion points - Resurrection



see preparation below


Copy of propeller egg page for each student
Copy of the chicks in the ovals (1 page for 9 children)
Glue -white glue or glue stick
Scissors
Markers or crayons
12 inch piece of string, cord or wire for each egg
(NOT YARN, NOT THREAD)
Optional LARGE beads , macaroni (bigger than the punched hole)
1 real egg

Prepare string or cord ends ahead- before class or the night before class.

This can be messy.

Get paper towels - or something to glue on - and a plate or something similar.


Harden string ends with a dab of glue on the cut ends.

Put a big drop or 2 of glue on the string end. Using your fingers, "pack" or "Press" the cut end fibers together so at least 3/4 of an inch is glued (compressed). You can harden up to 2 inches!) As it dries and hardens, it will become like a "needle" that can be threaded into the straw.

GLUE BOTH ENDS.

Hang the string ends off the plate or bowl and over the paper towel so they will dry straight and not stick to anything else.

You need to do it before class (or earlier) so it dries and hardens before use. Make one for each student.

You can get string or cord at a hardware store or big box hardware store or sewing store. Some drug stores may carry string in stationary or mailing departments.

Make an Easter Egg with chick inside

1. IDENTIFY parts of this project to your class. (left)

2. Color propellers if you are using uncolored version
3 Capable students cut all
(Cut the daisy hub towards the center to the end of the line. Then back out the scissors and cut from the other side)
3A. Younger kids cut groups like this. (Cut the daisy hub towards the center to the end of the line. Then back out the scissors and cut from the other side)
4. Punch all circles with JD in them 4A Easier option . Punch all circles with JD in them. Then cut individual propellers
4B. Either distribute sheet for each student to cut out one chick oval and pass it on, or rough cut and give out chick to each student for final cutting. 4c. Easier option. Punch button holes, then cut out snowman shapes

 

 

5. Get the Daisy hub and one propeller. Put glue on opposite spokes of the daisy hub.Lay the propeller over the hub. Align the hole and the hub spokes. 6. Continue to glue the rest of the propellers on the hub

 

7. Get the straw, glue and pencil. Put glue in the glue area. Put the pencil as shown and roll the paper over the pencil to the glued area. 8. Remove pencil. It should look like a straw, and you should be able to see through the end.

 

 

9. Get your hardened string - see Preparation section above.

Find the middle of the string. Mark it with a pencil or marker.

10. Fold a "Button" in half so it is stronger. You can glue it or not..

Bring the string through the daisy hub hole from the blank side out the colored side and then through one of the button holes. (Or through a large bead or real button)

You should see your middle mark on the string.

Send the string back through the other button hole. Snug it up. Continue back through the daisy hub hole.

The button is now holding the string so it doesn't pull through. Be gentle.

 

11. You should have both ends of the string in the blank side. 12. Send both ends of the string through the straw. You can do one at a time or both together, whatever works best for you. * You can do step # 15 and 16 now if it is easier for you, but then continue from here.
13. With the blank side up, begin bringing each propeller blade up and onto the doubled string.
You do not have to glue the propellers together.
14. Continue to add propeller blades that are next to each other until you are half way done.
15. Put glue on straw 16. Stick the chick on the straw.

 

 

16. Put one of the string ends through a buttonhole.

Put the other string end through the other buttonhole.

17. Gently tie the string.

Even out the propellers if they bunched up.

.
18. Done! You know the chick is inside and you can just see it between the propellers.
