Feeling Wise? Make a Paper Plate Owl

Are you a night owl? Try creating these paper plate beauties with your children.  Every owl will be unique. Encourage your kids to experiment with their ideas using colours and paints.  Be brave! Let your child play with the paints, mixing the colours to see what they can make.  Art activities with kids are an exploration. The only mistake is not starting. This is a brilliant activity for kids aged 4 to 7 years.

Step 2: Draw half a rectangle at the top of the second plate, these will form the ears head of the owl after you have cut this area out. The remaining whole plate will be the body.

Step 7: Decorate your owl with glitter glue/sparkles, extra paint etc. I used by finger to dab a darker blue colour on to the belly of the owl and glitter glue for the feathers. Use whatever you have on hand for decoration.
