This is a little bit difficult for Ethan’s level. The only thing he managed to do is to hold down the centre section down until the glue dries up. Alternatively, you can just put a clothe peg to hold it down until it dries up.

On one paper plate, fold about a third of the plate over (have the bottom of the plate facing forward). This paper plate will be the owl’s head.

On the folded part, cut two short slits and fold them back up. (These will be the owl’s tufts – although they look like ears, they are only feathers. An owl’s ears are simple holes on the sides of the head).

Glue the center section down.

Glue or staple the head to another paper plate.

Cut another paper plate in half (these will be the wings).

Glue or staple the wings to the body at a slight angle.


Color in the owl, drawing feathers, wings, or other patterns.


I’m a little bit dissapointed with the result of my colouring as the owl looks way too UGLY! If you are going to try this, try colouring it better, just don’t end up like MINE! 😀
