- brown, yellow and orange construction paper
- brown/white or what you have available paper lunch bag
- wiggly eyes (you can draw eyes on another piece of paper if you do not have wiggle eyes
- Roughly 5" of yarn - use can use any color of yarn that you have around the house
If the children are old enough, have them cut the owls body using the brown construction paper buy cutting a rectangle first, and then curving the bottom two edges. At the top curve inward from the two top corners (see photograph).
Have the children cut out the owls feet and beak. The owls feet (yellow construction paper) can be a circle and then cut the toes at the top of the circle. The beak (orange construction paper) is a triangle. Glue the eyes onto the owls body along with the feet and beak.
Next have the kids glue the owls body to the front of the brown/white lunch bag.
Have the kids crumple several sheets of newspaper and put them into the brown/white lunch bag, and tie the bottom of the bag with the 5" piece of yarn.
Lastly, fan out the bottom of the bag (right underneath the yarn) so that the owl can stand straight up on the table.
