Where did the summer go? It’s already time to start back to school! Crazy, isn’t it? Here’s a cute Owl Bookmark Craft to get your students excited about reading!
I LOVE owls, and by the looks of items available in stores, and PINS on Pinterest, I guess I’m certainly not alone. You could make this craft with your child or students and use them throughout the school year (I bet they are going to be a Hoot!).
Getting the Owl Bookmark Craft Ready:
You will need:
- Colored Cardstock – Orange, Green, Yellow, Brown.
- Craft Sticks or Popsicle Sticks
- Brown Marker
- Glue Stick
- Googly Eyes
Making the Owl Bookmark Craft
We used jumbo craft sticks for this craft activity. To make the craft stick resemble a tree trunk, we used a brown Sharpie to color the stick. Make sure you color both the sides. Let dry. If you are pressed for time, leave it blank or paste brown paper over it.
For the body of the owl, trace a circle onto the green card stock paper and cut it out. We had a 1.5-inch wide circle.
Similarly, cut out the other parts for the owl :
- two wings cut from orange handmade paper
- a yellow beak and claws
- finally the owl’s crown
Now we need to put them all together. Start with the triangle crest over the circular body. Use a glue stick to secure in place. Next, add the beak to the body of the owl.
Now, stick on the wings and the Googly Eyes
Using a green marker, add more designs to the owl.
Lastly, glue the owl onto the craft stick.
For the final touch, cut out a small branch from the brown cardstock and stick the owl’s feet. Voila! your bookmark is ready!
I love how you can get super creative with different colors and fun patterns on scrapbook paper to make some unique looking owls. We had so much fun making several different colored owls to give away as gifts. They are adorable, simple to create and are fun for any time of the year.
Not only is this Owl Bookmark Craft easy to make, students can now easily find the last page they were reading by placing this bookmark between the pages.
