Directions to Make Owl Craft with Owl Template

Step 1 – Choose Your Owl Template

Download & print owl template of your color choice.

Step 2 – Make Your Owl Cut Outs

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 – Assemble Your Owl Paper Craft

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 Paper 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.
