There is a perfect way to say, “I Love You,” this Valentin’s Day and that is with an adorable owl craft. You can quickly make one using our free template, making Valentine crafting with the kids easy breezy this year. Once done the kids can turn their craft into a card or piece of artwork (Check out the photos below of my kiddos handy work–I think they turned out so cute!). They can also begin saying things like, “Owl be yours,” “Your a hoot,” and “Guess hoo loves you?”
The free template includes a pattern for a large and small owl as well as a classroom set for teachers or those wanting to make more then one owl at a time. Speaking about the template, this craft was designed by my daughter Little Tiger (age 8) who designed and made the craft all on her own. It was so cute hanging on our wall that I had her make a second one so I could trace the pieces out and make a template to share with you. I hope you enjoy this craft as much as we do this Valentine’s Day!

We received the supplies marked with a * from our friends at CraftProjectIdeas who inspire us to craft often. You can find them at your local Walmart on the craft supplies aisle.
- Craft paper (I like using Cardstock Paper for all our crafting because the color is bright and it holds up to children gluing,)
- *Googly eyes
- Owl craft template (available to download with the directions at the end of this post)
You can watch our video and craft along with us or continue reading the directions below.
Cut out the craft template and trace the pieces onto your colored paper. This way you can use different colors for each piece of the owl. If you are using the classroom templates you can print the template directly on different colored paper so your students wouldn’t need to trace and cut out the template.
Cut out the owl pieces from the colored pieces of paper.
Glue the owl together adding the wings, beak, and eyes to the body. We used googly eyes, but I also included a template for eyes but they are small pieces and may be difficult for some children to cut out.
Optional: Glue the owls onto a folded piece of paper to make a card. This is when those adorable owl sayings would be perfect to write on the card.”Owl be yours,” “Your a hoot,” and “Guess hoo loves you?”
Optional: Glue the owls onto a piece of paper and make a picture with paper, markers, or other craft supplies that you have.
We hope you have a Happy Valentine’s Day. Thanks for crafting with us.
