Expedition Earth: Arctic Circle Snowy Owl Craft

Welcome to another fun Arctic Kids Craft! Today we learned about the Snowy Owl, then watched Owl Babies on You Tube. After that we made a fun Snowy Owl Craft.

Step 1: Cut one paper plate in half, cut a rectangle shape from the top of 1 plate for head, and keep one plate whole for body.

Step 2: Using whole plate as body, glue plate halves on either side for wings, and rectangle cut plate on top for head {see image above}.

Step 3: Attach eyes, beak, and feet using glue.

Step 4: Paint glue all over body.

Step 5: Sprinkle with fake snow and voila! Tip: Once dry, shake off excess snow so it doesn’t decorate your lovely clean kitchen floor…and the hallway…and the bathroom…and anywhere else the owl may venture.

    Cute project! Looks like fun! I noticed that your blue and yellow pans under the project must have helped contain everything nicely – could you tell me about those? Are they just pans from your kitchen or are these your "crafting pans"? Either way, what a great idea to help with this fun project!Thanks, Andrea
