Have the child choose the main color for their paper bag owl craft from colored cardstock or construction paper. Trace the bottom flap of paper bag onto the chosen paper. Cut and glue onto the bottom of the paper bag.
Next, add glue to the front of the paper bag (the side that has the bottom flap like in the image above). Take the cardstock and place it on top of the glue – make sure the piece is large enough to cover the bag before placing on. Use scissors to trim off the overhang from the sides.
Trace the owl template onto colored cardstock and cut the pieces out.
Cut a second beak shape out. Also cut a second wing of both wing sizes (one is slightly smaller than the other).
Glue the smaller wings on top of the larger wings. Attach the larger wings to the paper bag just under the flap and on an angle.
Attach the ears onto the top of the paper bag. Glue the two beak pieces together along one end and then glue it to the flap on the paper bag like shown in the above image.
Cut the eyes out and glue them above the beak. Add the feet to the bottom corners of the paper bag (see image below).
Add details to the wings and stomach area using a marker.
