I saw a similar craft posted at my daughter’s school when I took her to speech therapy last week, so I took a photo of it, and we created it at home. It’s a super simple project that’s great for kids of all ages!

Paper Plate Owl

Paper Plate OwlMaterials:

  • a white paper plate
  • scraps of construction paper
  • glue
  • markers, crayons, or paints


  1. Begin by coloring the inside (concave portion) of your plate. This will be the owl’s chest. owl's chest
  2. Next, fold in the two sides of the plate to make the wings. Fold down the top of the plate to make the head.folded plate
  3. Color the wings. I’m apparently going with a retro 1970s look for my owl. colored wings
  4. For the final step, glue two feet, two eyes, and a beak. You can choose any color paper you like to get different looks for your owl. Paper Plate Owl

My kids also made owls. How cute are these?? Lydia’s owl is on the left, Bryce’s owl is on the right.Paper Plate Owls.jpg
