Today our little guy decided he wanted to paint a new picture for his wall, so whilst he was busy with his masterpiece, my daughter and I sat down for some crafting time too. She’s only one but she loves getting involved with painting and crafting. I thought instead of just painting on a piece of paper it might be nice for her to make something to go in her bedroom which we are in the process of decorating. we’ve already got something of an animal theme going on so this painted owl toddler craft will be a perfect addition. Plus, she absolutely loved making them, of course my son and I cut out the shapes for her but she loved doing all the painting and sticking down. This little craft will definitely being going In the keepsake box when she grows out of it in her room!
You will need
White crafting paper or card
Paints and paintbrush
Black, orange and yellow paper
Take your white paper/card and cut out a circle to make your owl’s head and two leaf shaped wings.
Now it’s time for little one to create their masterpiece! Once they have finished painting put it to one side to dry.
Once your paper owl pieces are finished take the wings and glue one to either side of your circle head.
Cut out two orange circles and glue them near them near the top of the wings. Then, cut out two smaller black circles to make the pupils and glue them on to the orange ones. Next, you’ll need to make a beak. To do this fold a piece of yellow paper in half and using the fold as the base cut out a triangle shape to give you the folded diamond shape that you can see above. Glue one half of the beak down onto your owl.
To finish off your adorable toddler craft, cut out two little feet and glue them down on the back of your owl. once dry your owl is finished, Aren’t they just they just the sweetest!
