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:
- Owl feet to owl body – note that the feet are glued from behind in our example
- Owl wings to owl body – note that the wings are glued from behind in our example
- Owl eyes
- 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.
- Owl craft printable template (see article for free download)
