Owls have been my favorite animal for as long as I can remember. My daughter loves them as well. Every day she snuggles up with her favorite owl blanket and her stuffed owls. We can’t leave the house without them.

I had an idea for a simple owl craft for me and my owl lover, so when my daughter had a sleepover this weekend and the girls asked me to do a craft with them, I was over the moon.
All you need for this craft is construction paper, a glue stick, googly eyes and scissors.
I had the girls start by cutting oval shapes for the owl’s body. My daughter said that she was going to cut two because she wanted a mommy and a baby owl. Her friend agreed that that was a great idea and did the same.
Next, I had them cut quick and simple shapes out of the colors of their choice for the mosaic pieces. They chose pink, purple and white.
They used glue sticks and glued their cut shapes onto the owl’s body. If there was any excess overhang off of the owl’s body, we trimmed it off.
They each cut out ear tufts and glued them into place.
They cut shapes out for eyes. They cut large shapes out of the pink and then slightly smaller ones in white to mount inside of the pink. and then glued jumbo googly eyes to the white.
Then they each added an orange beak under the eyes.
They glued their mommy owls and babies to another piece of construction paper and then used markers to draw in wings, branches, suns and nests.
They also found some paper hearts and both decided to add them into their pictures for a little bit of love.
They did such a great job and were so adorable sharing their ideas with one another and admiring each others work.
