FOAM CUP SNOWY OWL KIDS CRAFT

We love learning about all types of owls, but in the winter time Snowy Owls are our favorite. They are so beautiful and since they live in the arctic they are a perfect animal to learn about in the winter. A few months ago we shared colorful owls made from foam cups and today we are sharing the same concept, but this time we made a snowy owl kids craft. Since no painting is needed, this snowy owl craft is super simple and quick to make so it’s perfect for preschool or for an activity at home. Look for some fun snowy owl book recommendations near the end of this post.

 

HOW TO MAKE A FOAM CUP SNOWY OWL KIDS CRAFT

 

Supplies you will need:

  • small foam cups (you can find these at the Dollar Store)
  • yellow and black cardstock paper
  • 1-Inch circle punch
    (optional)
  • white feathers
  • black permanent marker
  • glue (we used tacky glue)
  • scissors

Directions:

1. Start by cutting out two 1-inch circles from your yellow cardstock paper and a black bill from your black cardstock paper.

 

2. Use your black marker to make markings on your foam cup for your owl. Also, color in black pupils inside your yellow eyes.

 

3. Glue your eyes and bill onto your foam cup.

4. Finish your owl by gluing white feathers onto the sides of your foam cup. We used two feathers on each side but you could also just use one feather.

My preschooler was so cute. She told me she wanted to make her snowy owl craft have swirly dizzy eyes like it had been flying really fast and got dizzy. Her owl turned out adorable!
