Hearts Owl Craft

Tell the children they are going to have fun with a craft related to a unique bird: the owl!

The children will have fun making an easy and fun craft of an mostly assembled heart shapes (except for the eyes and legs) and during the crafting process many skills can be addressed.

Option 1: Print black and white template (optional wings template) Children can color, paint or decorate first, cut out and proceed as above.
Option 2: For Large Groups:
Print black & white template on card stock and use as a master template. Trace the patterns on folded construction paper or left-over paper to obtain pieces needed in each color.

Assembly: Each template has a small illustration of the finished owl craft to help children have an idea of how it looks when assembled. For large groups it may help to have a cut out craft and place small pieces of tape behind each piece and show on a board a sequence of assembly. Help children with location of accessory theme pieces.

Accessories: Write a greeting inside the apple leaf or the center of the owl body.

Other options, decorations and ideas:

1. Tape a ribbon or string to back of head to use as decoration or ornament.

Tips for accessories: Print the apple, heart & leaf template using black and white version directly on red paper, cut out the leaf pattern and trace onto green paper to save on ink.
