Wise Owl Kids Craft
September is here and with that, so are our after school kids art classes! Fall is a magical time and with learning at the forefront of children’s (and hopefully adult’s too!) lives, we wanted to share one of our first fall kids art project in our after school program.
We chose to start with an owl because it is related to knowledge but also fall. Owls live within the darkness, which includes magic, mystery, and ancient knowledge. Related to the night is the moon, which owls are also connected to. What a better way to start our kids after school art classes that with this very magical and mystical creature?
If you would like to create this creature at home, here is a DIY step by step that you can follow!
Step One: Cut the body, wings and eyes from a stack of white paper. We used 8 pieces above with regular white paper. You can try thicker stock paper and cut out one at a time.
Step Two: Lay out Wise Owls and paint the body and wings. This is where you can be creative with kids and ask them to do stripes, polka dots, patterns, or even use sponges. Anything is possible for this step!
Step Three: Cut out small triangles for beaks and add eyes! There you have them, Wise Owls! You can leave them as is, or as we are doing, laminate them and use for decorations in windows or on walls or even at story time with your kids! We love the idea of gifting these and you could even put your kids into frames or put them on the cover or a greeting card for a fall birthday. The possibilities are endless!
Next week, we will have our second after school class of the season. Watch for our next blog post about one of our activities or better yet, register your kids for our afternoon art class and join the creative fun this year!
