Here’s What You Need
Here’s your craft supply list (This post contains affiliate links to the products mentioned. Read my disclosure policy for more information):
- Free Printable Owl Template <— Get it Here!
- colored copy paper, colored cardstock, or construction paper
- glue sticks
- marker for the eyes
Step 1: Download and Print the Free Printable Owl Template
Download and print the Free Printable Owl Template. In the next step, learn how to quickly cut out as many shapes as you need.
Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Preschool Owl Craft Shapes
Once you have the template printed out, staple it to construction paper and cut out multiple shapes at a time.
So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.
Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 6-10 sheets of construction paper.
Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.
Step 3: How to Assemble
The kids will have so much making their Owl Craft!
I recommend having a finished Owl craft so the children can see what the final version will look like.
- glue the white eye piece onto the top the owl body
- glue the belly (heart or circle) to body front
- glue on the beak
- glue the wings to the back of the owl body (the pointed part of the wing should be up)
- draw on the eyes
- optional: glue on the bow
- Don’t forget to write your name on the back
And you’re finished!
This is such a fun and simple Valentine’s Day craft for kids. Kids will love choosing the colors and making their owl. This owl craft is so easy for preschool, elementary school, Scouts or just a fun craft at home idea.
