Tube Owls

toilet paper tube owls

We’re a little owl-obsessed around our house.  So when I saw toilet paper tube owls on Pinterest, I knew we had to try it.  The ones I saw were beautiful with intricate designs drawn with black sharpies.  Not exactly a project for a three-year-old and a five-year-old.  So we improvised.  Bring on the googly eyes and foam shapes!  These owls are so simple that my daughters made them completely on their own.  And isn’t that the best kind of project?  They get to learn by creating, then play with their creation. It’s a win-win!

Super simple instructions:

  1. Fold the top of the tube down. (optional: cut tube to make an owlet)
  2. Paint tube.
  3. Glue on eyes and foam (or construction paper) shapes for beak and wings.

 

Materials:

  • toilet paper roll
  • foam shapes (or cut out triangles and ovals from construction paper)
  • googly eyes
  • glue
  • paint
