Spend some quality time with your little one making this cute owl.

Step 1: Gather all of your supplies. You will need a toilet paper roll, orange or yellow paper for the beak and feet as well as different coloured paper for the owl’s feathers. You will also need paint the same colour as the paper you will be using for the owl’s feathers, a glue stick, paintbrush, scissors and googly eyes.

Step 2: Use the yellow paper and cut out two half-hearts (with the bottom cut off) for the feet and a smaller diamond shape that you will fold in half to create the beak.

Step 3: Use a ruler to create rounded feathers that are 2.5cm long and 2cm wide. Measuring this out makes the cutting process a lot easier.

Step 4: If you have an older toddler you can let them use safety scissors to help cut the feathers. Use a different shade of the colour you’ve chosen to cut slightly longer feathers for the owl’s wings. Paint your toilet paper roll.

Step 7: Fold the tops and bottoms of the toilet paper roll to create the shape and ears for the owl. Using a glue stick, stick the feet onto the bottom of your owl first, as you want them to be underneath the feathers. Gradually build up the feathers from the bottom, layering the feathers on top of each other. We used three layers of feathers  Stick the beak onto the bottom of the owl’s face, close to the feather,s and then add the two larger wings on each side with a glue stick.

Step 11: Lastly, stick the eyes onto your owl. Now you have a gorgeous little woodland creature.
