If you follow us on our blog our social media you, may already know that we are a bit owl obsessed. I absolutely love all the cute things I have seen made with pudding cups! We recently decided to challenge ourselves to make owls using Hershey’s Ready to Eat Pudding. They are fun (and quick!) to pack in school lunches, have as a creative after school snack, or even be used when empty and clean for storing small items. These Hershey’s pudding owl snacks may even be a big hit with the school kids once they see your child whip out an oh-so-yummy and fun-looking dessert during lunchtime!
I thought about some possible items needed to make our owls, then headed to Walmart to purchase them. We ended up getting thick, vinyl eye stickers as well as sticky googly eyes that were in different colors and styles. Both were found in the scrapbook section. We happen to pass a section with fall accessories for cheap and thought the package of colorful fall leaves would be cute to make owl wings with. I also couldn’t resist buying the small pack of miniature pinecones which we used to style our photos with later on.
We found the Hershey’s Chocolate Pudding (4 ct Cups) in the cooler section of the grocery store by other chilled snack items. Originally I thought they were in the snack aisle.
My kids were beyond excited to try the Hershey’s S’mores Pudding since it was a new flavor they that they have yet to try. However, they were completely sold out of the S’mores flavor. Just to make sure there weren’t any hiding in the back somewhere, I snapped the picture and asked an employee to check for me.
They were completely out, so we bought a couple packs of the chocolate pudding (made with real Hershey’s cocoa!). The chocolate flavor is a must – so yummy!

Pudding Owl Craft Instructions:
Turn your pudding cup upside down. Decide how you’d like to make the big owl eyes. We experimented with a few different things such as felt flowers, scrapbook paper, and scrapbook flowers. Little Sister picked pink flowers of course! Stick it on near the top with either the glue dots or tape. Choose sticky eyes to place over it. Make a small beak and adhere underneath the eyes using tape or glue dots.
Next, it’s time to make the wings! First, I used the leaves that we purchased during our shopping trip to make a fun fall inspired owl. Little Sister’s favorite part was picking out which pieces to use. She (predictably) insisted on using pink flowers for one of her owls. This project is also easy enough for her to make by herself with a little guidance. She used my fall inspired owl for inspiration. She wasn’t digging the leaves so I grabbed out our small bag of feathers and let her use those instead. They easily stick on with tape. When finished, you can use a permanent markers to draw details on the owl’s tummy.
That’s it! Easy Peasy.
After eating the yummy owl snacks, we took the owl pieces off, rinsed the cups out, turned them right-side up and added the embellishments back on. Now they can be used as a cute storage idea for things such as paperclips, rubber bands, thumbtacks, or anything else you can think of! Little Sister enjoys putting all her Paw Patrol erasers inside her favorite owl craft cup. They would even be cute to paint and use as Fall decorations inside the home!
