How to Make this Sweet Owl Toilet Paper Roll Craft
• 1 toilet paper roll
• Cupcake liners (plain or decorated)
• White paper
• Black Marker
How To Make the Owl Toilet Paper Roll Craft:
Place your toilet paper roll onto the table and fold down the middle to make the pointy ears of the owl. Tape the center down as well as you can to make the ears as obvious as you can. You can work on this part while your child is coloring the cupcake wrappers.
Take one of your cupcake liners that your child has colored and help them cut it into 4 equal pieces. You might be able to throw in a little math with this part 😉 Help them tape the cupcake liners down the front center of the toilet paper roll craft.
Now to start working on the wings…. Cut one cupcake liner in half…….. a little more math learning for them 😉 and tape or glue the wings onto the back of the owl.
Cut two large round circles for the eyes out of the cupcake wrappers and have your child color two black circles on the eyes, one on each.
Tape the eyes just below the ears on the owl. I did find that it looked better if they overlapped just a bit.
Place your finished product in a special place!! Your child worked hard on it and I bet it is beautiful!!! I bet they even had some quaility time that they spent with Mom, Dad, Grandma or Grandpa making it so it means a lot to them and they have made a great memory making it. That is after all what life is all about isn’t it?? Who cares of the house is dirty or if laundry needs to be done. Your child is only young once and if that is the only thing you learn from this blog then I have accomplished what I sat out to accomplish!!
Spend time with your kids while they still want you to because there will come a day when they will be to busy for Mom and Dad 😉
