Flying Owl Paper Plate Craft

This is a great looking owl craft made from paper plates. So cute.

  • 2 paper plates
  • brown paint
  • yellow, white, black, and orange paper
  • scissors
  • glue


  1. Paint both paper plates brown. Allow to dry.
  2. Cut out 2 large yellow, 2 medium white, and 2 small black circles. Glue together to make eyes.
  3. Cut one paper plate in half.
  4. Trim the top of the other paper plate to look like ears.
  5. Glue the 2 half paper plates to the back for wings.
  6. Glue the eyes on the front.
  7. Cut and glue on a small orange triangle beak.

  1. I like this owl craft idea; very simple, and it looks exciting with the wings out as if it is flying. Could be used in teaching names of shapes-- circle, half-circle, triangle.

  2. Thank you Diane, Glad you like it. Of course, that's a great idea to teach shapes. Paper Plate crats are so versital. Check out the paper plate Easter rabbit I posted. Similar concept.

  3. Love the owl going to use it today for my night animal unit. the preschoolers will love it! Thanks for the idea.
