To make an easy toilet paper roll owl craft, you will need a few basic materials that can be found at home.

Here are the materials you will need:

Materials Needed

  • Toilet paper roll

To start, gather all of the materials needed for this craft.

Toilet Roll Owl Craft For Kids Instructions:

Step 2: Flatten the toilet paper roll once the paint has dried.

Use scissors to cut both bottom corners of the toilet paper roll to form the owl’s body.

Then, slightly fold down the top to form a curve.

This is what makes the owl’s distinguishable face shape. 

Use the image below as a guide.

Step 3: Cut two small circles from white construction paper. 

Fill half the circles with a black marker to make the owl’s eyes.

Step 6: Cut the beak and feet from the yellow construction paper.

This can be as simple or intricate as you like.

I suggest cutting 3 small triangles for little kids to represent the beak and feet.

Extending The Owl Craft For Preschool

Now, if you are making this easy owl craft for toddlers or preschoolers, there are many ways to extend the activity and continue the fun.

Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Storytelling with Your Owl Crafts

Encourage your child to use their new owl friends as characters in their stories.

They can create a simple plot, act out scenes, and even make up dialogue for their owls.

This activity is a great way to develop your child’s imagination and storytelling skills.

To make the activity more engaging, you can create a story prompt from which your child can work.

For example, you could say, “Your owl friends are going on an adventure to find a lost treasure. What obstacles do they face along the way?” This will help your child focus their storytelling and give them a starting point for creativity.

Toilet Paper Roll Owl Puppet Show

Your child can also use toilet paper roll owls to put on a puppet show for friends and family.

It will be so simple to put on fun show while wearing the toilet roll owls on their arms.

They can even try out being a ventriloquist!

Overall, the Easy Toilet Paper Roll Owl Craft for Kids is a great way to encourage creativity and imaginative play in your child.

Extending the activity with storytelling and puppet shows, you can help your child develop communication and social skills while having fun with their new owl craft friends.
