What You'll Find on This Page
I love owl crafts because they’re one that you can easily adapt across the seasons. We tend to do more brown coloured crafts in fall for barn owls and tawny owls but you can also use them for snowy owl crafts which tend to be more popular in winter.
Also if your children are Harry Potter fans (and we very much are) then you can use these to make Harry’s owl Hedwig, Ron’s owl Pigwidgeon or Malfoy’s owl. Whatever gets your kids interested eh!
As usual I’ve shared a few ideas for owl crafts and activities that you could use these templates for and I’m sure you’ll come up with a few more yourself.
We also have a cut and paste owl craft where you can color and make your own owl, make sure you check that out too!
You can get your free owl template at the end of this page when you subscribe to the Crafts on Sea newsletter – don’t worry we don’t send spam and you can unsubscribe whenever you like.
Owl Crafts Ideas
Coloring: Never feel obliged to have to do something with all the glue and paint, sometimes a bit of coloring is perfect for having some quiet and calm at home! Grab your favorite markers, crayons or coloring pencils and decorate your owl coloring page with these. Coloring is a great quiet time activity and it’s one that kids of all ages can join in with including toddlers and preschoolers.
Cotton Wool: Use this template to make a snowy owl craft! Use the basic template and then glue on cotton wool over the body. You could use milk bottle lids for the eyes or draw the eyes and beak onto cardstock before cutting and gluing these on.
Torn paper: For an alternative to using scissors tear brown paper into pieces (brown paper bags or construction paper is good for this) and glue it over the body of your owl.
Toilet roll painting: We’ve printed the feathers for this toilet roll owl craft using this printable and paper rolls.
Finger painting: Use this as an excuse to learn how to mix brown paints (this article helps) and do finger-painting over your owl. Of course you can change this up for other, brighter colours if you would prefer.
Leaves: Color in your owl’s body and look for large leaves to glue stick on for the wings. In my experience to glue leaves PVA glue works better than stick glues but double sided sellotape is much better than either of these for something that will work quickly without the risk of your leaves slipping off the page. This activity could also be a good excuse to get outside for a bit.
