Bobble Head Owl Craft: Tutorial

Printing the Template

Download and print the Bobble Head Owl Template from the Arty Crafty Kids members area.

The template can be downloaded onto good quality paper or card stock.

If you opt for cardstock, remember to check your printer settings for a recommended weight. Most printers prefer card stock less than 220gsm.

Step 3: Once the owl template has thoroughly dried, cut out the elements.

The template has been designed with little hands in mind; using big thick lines and simple shapes to encourage smaller children to have a go at cutting for themselves.

Step 9: Draw around a pair of Arty Crafty Hands onto coloured paper/card and cut the handprints out.

Step 10: Secure the handprint wings to the owl’s body.

Creating the accordion fold.

Make an Accordion Fold – ‘Bobble’

Step 11: Using scissors or a paper cutter, cut out two even strips of coloured paper (or card for a better bounce, however it’s trickier for kids to fold) – ideally, the strips will be fairly wide and for length, I recommend cutting the paper from the shortest side of an A4 piece of paper or longest side of a piece of card.

Take the two strips and position them in a 90° angle as shown above. Glue the connecting papers together.

Step 12: Fold the bottom strip over the top and crease the fold along the edge. This will make the accordion fold tight!

Completing the accordion fold.

Securing the Accordion Fold

Step 13: Continue this process until all the is paper has been folded.

Seal the ends with glue.

Securing the accordion fold.

Step 14: Glue one end of the accordion fold between the two handprint wings.

Step 15: Glue the beak to the back of the large eyes.

How to Make an Owl Babies Craft

Baby owls are pretty much the most adorable thing ever, don’t you agree? After reading the book Owl Babies by Martin Waddell several times last week we decided it would be fun to make a craft to go along with it.
