Cotton Ball Owl Craft for Kids!

Cotton Ball Owl Craft for Kids_Story Time_Library

This week at Story Time we are reading Little Owl Lost by Chris Haughton, which means we need to do an owl craft! Here’s a tutorial of a quick and easy (and affordable) craft for pre-school aged children.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Construction paper (for background)
  • Cotton balls (3 per child)
  • Popsicle sticks (I used 2 mini popsicle sticks per child)
  • Googly eyes (6 per child)
  • Scrapbooking paper (cut into triangles)
  • Glue stick (my favourite)

Everything used above was either bought at a dollar store or bought on-sale at Walmart, with the exception of the Glue as I buy it in bulk from a Library supplier ๐Ÿ™‚

First things first, glue your popsicle sticks down on the paper to act as your branches for your owls to perch on.

Then, take each of your cotton balls and fluff them out a bit, without removing any of the cotton ball.

Take each of your fluffed out cotton balls and place them somewhere on your branches, you’ll be attaching their feet and beaks next.

After attaching the feet and beaks, place a finger at the top of each owl in the middle, and pull on either end to make the ear shape.

Lastly, you’re attaching your eyes!

What is your favourite thing about owls? Mine is that they can twist their heads around in every direction! Let me know in the comments!
