Easy to Make Paper Plate Owl Craft for Fall

It is such a great time of year when the weather starts getting cooler and the kids are excited about school… I can’t help but channel my inner teacher and share some craft and learning ideas for fall. This one is very easy for kids to make on their own. For younger kids, you can give them the pieces and help them assemble everything into the finished owl. Either way it is a fun way for kids to follow directions, use creativity, and make something that they can be proud to share with their families. Have fun making this owl craft with your kids!

  • What you will need:
    3 blue orange plates
    children’s glue
    craft feathers
    paper straws in various designs and the colors blue, white and orange.
    plain paper

How to Make:
1.) Use the scissors to cut one plate at the top to make the owls ears. (see photo)
2.) Cut another plate in half to make the wings.

3.) Use the pen to draw two big, round eyes (approx. 3 inches in diameter) with a smaller circle in the center.
4.) Draw two feet for the owl by making a semi circle the same size as the eyes and then 3 points across the bottom (like an upside down tulip).
5.) Draw a diamond about 2″ x 1″ for the beak.
6.) Color in the beak and the eyes.
7.) Cut out all the pieces and set aside.

8.) On the third plate, make washi tape stripes on the body.

9.) Glue the eyes and beak on the head.

10.) Assemble the pieces to create an owl.
11.) Glue the feet to the bottom of the body.

12.) Choose a feather for each wing and glue to secure.

TIP: You can use the glue gun to help child secure the paper plates to cut down on drying time.

Save this pin for later. . .
