This is a great kids’ craft simply because it uses things you already have on hand. I also appreciated the fact that it gave my four-year-old a chance to practice her improving cutting skills!
What You Need to Make a Paper Cutout Owl
- Construction paper
Totally simple craft supplies for your owl cut out.
Start by cutting out a branch shape and gluing it to your blue background. This is where your cutout owls will be hanging out.
I just freehand drew some leaf shapes onto green construction paper and let my little one practice with her safety scissors.
Draw and cut out an egg shape for the owl’s body. Glue it onto the branch.
Make a sort of a bean shape to cut out and glue on for the owl’s face. We cut some triangles for ears, too.
Don’t forget to draw eyes and a beak. Of course, ours also have eyelashes because they are apparently girl owls.
The little one didn’t feel so confident with this more complex shape, so I cut out our owls’ wings.
Glue the wings in place. I traced around ours with the marker so they were a little more defined.
Who? Who? Who is sitting on that branch?!
