Looking for an adorable and easy Spring project for your little ones? This Spring Chicken is a fast cut-and-paste craft the kids will love.
My son's Kindergarten teacher loves crafts, so I try to come with projects that everyone can enjoy and usually something to work those fine motor skills. This one is perfect because it's actually a two-in-one that works those pincer grasps, spatial awareness and coloring skills.
Two-in-one, you say? The chicken body doubles as an egg template! They can glue their chickens together and then practice coloring with the eggs.
And since this is an svg file, there are even more possibilities - cut it in vinyl and make a cute shirt or cut a pile of eggs and make some garland. Go wild!
A few dabs from the glue stick and they're done. The best part is, you can use your Silhouette or Cricut to cut everything and the prep time is minimal - win-win
Warm up that machine, and grab your blade, mat and some paper. I was able to grab this pack of paper at the local Fred's for next to nothing. I used the card stock setting and, because I'm a rebel, I set the blade at 4-1/2.
(Excuse the mat. You know you have a cut up mat like that hid somewhere too! This one is my reserved paper mat, super messy, but it works.)
Frugal Crafter Hint - I test cut new designs in paper, it's cheaper and I don't have to cry over lost vinyl.
I had some googly eyes leftover from our St. Patrick's Day project, so I subbed the paper eyes. I haven't met a kid who doesn't love googly eyes. Some feathers would be super fun for the arms and head too.
The svg is pre-set for a 6" tall chicken. At that height, per page, you will able to cut:
Or you can always just cut the eggs out. Add a few crayons and you have an instant homemade Easter decoration!
So grab your copy and see where your imagination takes you.

It's the weekend! Let's get the party started with a little 90's love!
If you grew up in the 90's, you for sure have said this at least a few times. Time to educate the kids with this cute version:
The end of the year is coming up fast which means Teacher Appreciation Day is just around the corner!
There have been some great discussions on the Silhouette and Cricut boards lately about what teachers love receiving and surprisingly gift cards seem to top the list, but for reasons I that never occurred to me.
This week's for the cat lovers! We love some kitties around here (we have 3 balls of fur). They're each so different and definitely have their own personalities.
And the little hipster animals with glasses are so the cat's meow (see what I did there?) but really, if a cat wore glasses, they would have to be cat eye shaped, don't you think?
