We are switching modes today from all of the Saint Patrick’s Day fun for an easy Easter craft for kids. After making these Easter Bunny Egg Hunt Bags, the kiddos were dying to play with them. It is hard explaining to a 3 year old that he has to wait for Easter when he can clearly see that the bag is ready now. These adorable feathery baby chicks noisemakers are the perfect craft to tide him over until all of the Easter egg hunt fun.

If you follow me on Instagram then you saw the game I created with leftover plastic plates from a craft. These adorable feathery baby chicks noisemakers are that craft. I can’t say enough how much I recommend having a plastic plate war with the leftover plates. Yes, it is technically a waste of money, but come on…. the entire pack was a buck. It wasn’t long before the entire family was tossing plates around the living room like crazy people. We were full of laughter and happiness and I think that moment is worth way more than a dollar.
- Yellow Plastic Dessert Plates
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Assorted Googly Eyes
- Orange (or Black) Construction Paper
- Yellow Feathers
- Un-popped Popcorn
Pull out one plastic plate and add some un-popped popcorn to the inside.
Add glue around the entire lip of the plastic plate.
Next, firmly press a second plastic plate on top of the glue face down to form a pocket.
Now glue 2 feathers on either side of your noisemaker. See the picture above for reference.
Next, glue 2 googly eyes on your plate as pictured above.
Then cut a triangle of construction paper form the beak and glue it to the center of your plastic plate under the googly eyes.
- If your kiddos are making this, skip the hot glue and opt for liquid non-toxic glue. It will be longer until the kids can play with their noisemakers but safer as well.
Lastly, be sure to let everything dry completely before allowing kids to play with them.
These feathery baby chicks noisemakers turned out so adorable. I don’t recommend using non-toxic glue to seal them. You should glue the plates together with hot glue still. Otherwise they are likely to come apart while your kids are playing with them. That leads to popcorn flying all over the house and a mess you really don’t want to deal with. One last tip, you need to use plastic plates because they are colored on every side. Paper plates are white on the back so you have to paint them if you use them. Don’t forget to give a plastic plate fight a try too. Whip them like frisbees and take a moment to enjoy the chaos. These are the moments you will cherish.
