It’s getting close to the time churches celebrate the death and Resurrection of Christ, families and communities have fun Easter egg hunts and crafts for Easter can be found just about anywhere. But why not keep all that Spring cheer around all year with a cute Easter Chick Savings Bank?
Easter Chick Savings Bank
- Empty Pringles Can
- Yellow and Orange Foam
- Yellow Construction Paper
- Glue Stick
- Markers or Crayons
- Print this Easter chick head out onto a piece of paper. Lay the paper over the yellow foam. Cut out the chick.
- Wrap a sheet of yellow construction paper around the empty Pringles and glue it down (some younger kids may need help with this).
- Cut out a triangle for the the beak of the chick and two half- circles for the feet.
- Glue the beak and feet onto the Easter chick. Draw the eyes, and then glue the chick to the can.
- Cut a slot in the top of the can just big enough to fit a dollar bill and some coins through. Put the lid on the can and enjoy your cute new craft for Easter.
- Use googly eyes on your chick bank instead of drawing them by hand.
- Teach your kids the importance of saving money by adding money to the chick throughout the year, and then using whatever money is in there to do something fun as a family next Easter. Next year, you can all count the money you added together and decide how to spend it. This is a great way to get your kids to practice counting money while teaching them that different things cost more than others.
Whether you decide to do crafts for Easter, go to a special Easter service, or play family games, do your best to spend this Sunday with your family.
