Directions to Make Owl Craft

Step 1

Download & print owl template of your color choice.

Step 2

Cut the pieces of the owl out. Before cutting out, you can glue to a card stock base and let the glue dry before cutting out if you want a thicker base for your owl craft.

Step 3

Follow the little picture of the finished owl craft in the upper right corner of each printed owl craft template. I like to start at the bottom and move up by gluing on:

  1. Owl feet to owl body – note that the feet are glued from behind in our example
  2. Owl wings to owl body – note that the wings are glued from behind in our example
  3. Owl eyes
  4. Owl nose

Modifying Owl Craft for Kids Ages

  • For younger kids for a preschool owl craft, you can cut out the pieces ahead of time or have the preschoolers practice their scissor skills. Then hand over a glue stick, and see what he comes up with based on following the guide at the top of the printable.  It can be a little tricky because the wings and the feet need to glued to the back side of the body instead of the front.
  • For older kids you can print out both owl templates and let them mix and match the owl cut outs.

    These are very cute printables. I am wondering how I could avoid having the pieces be cut out, which of course my 3 year old granddaughter isn’t able to do. She can do crafts where your punch out the pieces and she can do stickers. And she can glue the pieces on.

    These printables would work to make paper bag puppets.
