The chick and the duckling storytime snacks and a craft for kids.

Duckling cup craft

What you need

  • Yellow treat cup (or paper cup)
  • Orange card stock
  • Googly eyes
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Glue


Have your child draw the feet and beak on the orange card stock and cut them out.  Glue them onto the treat cup along with the googly eyes.

Chick sandwich

What you need

  • Bread
  • Round cookie cutter (or a glass or small dish)
  • Cheese slice
  • Carrot stick
  • Candy eyes
  • Knife


Cut the bread and cheese into a circular shape using the cookie cutter. Place the cheese on top of the bread.

Peel and cut a slice off the wide end of the carrot stick.  The carrot slice will be a circle, make two cuts on either side in a ‘V’ shape to make the beak.  You will have two pieces left, trim the ends of them to make the feet.

Have your child place the carrot beak, carrot feet, and candy eyes onto the cheese and bread.

Chick trail mix

What you need

  • Popcorn
  • Cheerios
  • Annie’s Bunny Grahams
  • Trader Joe’s Jelly Beans – coconut, lemon & lime, banana split, apple, tangerine, mango and lemon (we prefer these because they have natural flavors)


Have your child add all of the ingredients to the chick treat cup.
