Twit Twoo, this Owl Hat Craft is a real hoot! We just adore their great big eyes, and when you wear them you can give their wings a tap with your fingers to make them flap. It’s such a fun owl craft to make and wear!
If you’re looking for an easy autumn craft for kids then these owl crowns are perfect. They are super simple to make with the printable template which comes in three colours; brown, pink and grey. They’re all lovely and we think the grey one is perfect for winter to make a snowy owl hat too. You can scroll down to the bottom to see how we added wintery sparkles to ours.
The owl hat template also includes a black and white version that children can enjoy decorating themselves or they can trace around it onto coloured cardstock if you prefer. The template comes in both US and UK spellings and paper sizes.
This is such a lovely cut and paste owl craft for kids of all ages. It’s perfect for autumn and also nocturnal, owl and woodland animal study themes all year round.
It’s great fun to use this Owl Craft for:
- an autumn writing prompt
- following step by step instructions
- fine motor scissor skills
- combining with an owl, nocturnal or woodland study unit
- combining with an owl or woodland animal writing activity
- autumn parties
- a reward or extension activity
