I made this little owl with my four-year-old, and I just love it. We used coffee filters that we colored for fall as the wings.

  • Using markers – We first colored 2 coffee filters with fall colors
  • Then we took them outside, and on a protected surface…we sprayed them with water to blend the colors

  • While the coffee filters dried, we stuffed a paper bag about 3/4 of the way up

  • I then folded the top of the paper bag, just like you would a paper airplane, with the edges folded together to make a point, and glued to secure it
  • I then folded the point down
  • I traced handprints on the now-dry coffee filter and cut them out
  • I used orange foam sheets to cut out a beak, belly, & feet
  • Then I cut some big green circles out of green foam – I used a toilet paper roll to trace the circles
  • I used giant google eyes to glue onto the green circles
  • Then I assembled everything as shown
