Owl Crafts for Kids

Owls make perfect craft symbols for young children. Between their adorably cute big eyes and their attachment to stories of wizards and magical lands, owls have flown their way into the hearts of children everywhere. Use owls as the inspiration for your next kids' craft project and watch your own children's eyes enlarge with delight over the idea.

Paper Bag Puppet

Kids can turn a paper bag into an owl friend with a little construction paper and some glue. An owl paper bag puppet features a construction-paper beak with two yellow eyes and feathers glued onto their construction paper wings.

Feather Collage

Young children can tear up small pieces of brown, orange and white construction paper and then glue them onto a printed picture of an owl. The torn paper pieces will resemble ruffled feathers and the children can get practice using their fingers to tear the paper and gluing objects to an image.

Painted Rocks

Smooth, oval rocks can take on an owlish appearance with a little paint. Children can paint owl eyes, beaks and feathers onto the rocks and let them dry. They can give them as gifts to family and friends. Suddenly, an old rock has been transformed into a piece of art to display or a paperweight.

Pine Cone Owl

An ordinary pine cone can become an owl if children glue triangles of felt onto it for feathers, circles of felt and buttons for eyes. You can use pipe cleaners for talons. These little owls make for festive fall decorative items in the home.

Soft Friends

Children can glue together two basic owl shapes cut out of felt and stuff the shapes with fiberfill before finishing the gluing process. They can glue other felt shapes to the front for the owl's eyes and beak, and glue more triangles of felt to the back for his feathers. Now their little feathered friend is a portable pal to take with them wherever they go.
