Whenever learning about the different animals, I always find myself at a crossroads as to what activity to do. There are so many animal crafts all over the internet and art books. All seem to be so wonderful that we always have a hard time deciding which one to go with. For our lesson on animals that fly/ birds, we decided to make an owl craft.


My partner and I came up with 2 different ideas and we decided to merge them together. This was the result.




What you will need:

  • Brown paper bag
  • Construction Paper
  • Bond Paper
  • Colorful feathers
  • Large buttons
  • Glue
  • Scrap Paper


What you will do:

Step 1 (Preparation):  Cut out some circles using the construction paper and bond paper to serve us background for the buttons. Also cut a pair of wings and a beak for each child



Step 2: Have the kids crumple up some scrap paper and stuff the brown paper bag with it



Step 3: Seal the brown paper bag by folding it into a triangular shape. (You might want to cut it off a bit to make it straight first)



Step 4: Glue the buttons unto the colorful circles



Step 5: Glue the feathers unto the wings


Step 6: Put them all together to form the owl!



Have a HOOTIN’ WEEK ahead!
