Improving Fine Motor Skills

We all know that crafting is super fun, but it’s also great for improving fine motor skills. As your little cut-out shapes, and draw on faces, not only will they get to express their creativity, but they will also get some fine motor practice.

The template PDF makes it easy to cut out the chicken shapes.

Step 2: Cut Out the Chicken Craft Shapes

Print the free chicken printable templates. You will be stapling them to colored paper and cutting out as many shapes as you need.

print the chicken templates and staple them to multiple sheets of paper before cutting. Notice the two different colored green paper for the leaves.

If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.

Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Tip: While you’re cutting, if you cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left.

Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together.

Step 3: How to Assemble

The kids will just need to glue it all together and make it their own.

  1. Glue the chicken wings (long ovals) to the side of the big circle.
  2. glue on comb (red paper part on the top of the head) – I like to glue it behind the main circle.
  3. Glue on the chicken feet.
  4. glue on the triangle beak.
  5. Optional: Personalize your craft by adding yellow feathers, googly eyes, cut out a white oval for an egg, let your imagine soar.
  6. Don’t forget to put your name on the back.
