Fun Owl Facts
Owls are fascinating creatures. Before I start our crafts, I always create a lesson plan to integrate. For our owl craft templates, I researched some interesting knowledge about owls and added a fun owl book.
Here are some fun rainbow facts for kids:
- Over 200 types of owls live on the earth.
- Barn owls mate for life. When their mate dies, the other one becomes depressed and might even die too.
- Owls can’t move their eyes. They have to move their head to see.
- Owls can turn their heads almost completely around.
- The Owl is a symbol of learning.
- Owls spit up pellets that contain the bones and fur of their prey.
These and more facts about owls can be found here.

2. O is for Owl
Add our easy owl templates to your preschool studies, while learning the letter ‘O’.
Print out some upper and lowercase letter O worksheets and let your students trace them. You even can add some simple owl crafts for the letter O sound.
Make sure to study each letter individually so your students can form memories for each letter and memorize them more easily.
3. Owl Coloring Pages
The easiest way of using our templates is as owl coloring pages. Take our large owl outline printable and turn it into an easy owl coloring sheet.
You can adjust the difficulty level depending on your children’s age. Use the larger picture of an owl for younger children and the smaller owl printables for older children.
Instead of coloring their owl sheets with markers, they can also try various new painting techniques to make it more interesting. For example, have they tried Salt Painting yet? It is really fun. Take a look at the link to find the full tutorial!
4. Owl Stencils
Using our owl printouts as stencils is also an easy way to make an adorable owl craft. For owl stencils, I recommend using smaller or medium-sized owl outlines!
We love using an old toothbrush for our stencil projects. With the help of watercolors, you can create beautiful owl artwork.
You can find the full instructions and complete Toothbrush Technique Guide here. Enjoy!
5. DIY Owl Cards
Our owl pictures to print are always great so make your own greeting cards out of them. In this case, I recommend using our medium owl patterns to print for free.
All you have to do is print them on thicker paper, cut them in the middle, and fold them into a card.
Then you or your children can color them nicely and write a nice message inside for your family or friends.
6. Owl Garland
As we learned above, owls are a symbol of wisdom. So what is better to decorate your classroom with than a cute owl garland?
First, let your students, cut and decorate your owl templates. Then attach them with clear tape on a string.
To decorate the owls your children can get creative and use all kinds of craft supplies such as googly eyes, glitter, and other fun materials.
Now use your owl decoration for your classroom or maybe even an owl birthday party. Happy crafting!
7. Other Owl Crafts
Besides using our owl templates to learn and craft there are other ways to create beautiful owls. Here are some great owl crafts using paper plates, cupcake liners, paint, and cans.
