This Pom Pom Stamped Snowy Owl Painting is perfect for when the temperature starts to drop or for accompanying a lesson on birds
During our winter theme activities, we always like to learn about animals that live in cold climates. We also like to tie in artwork whenever we can. For an arctic animal theme, we were fascinated by the Snowy Owl.
This is an easy art project for young children to paint and the pom-pom stamping makes it a lot of fun. The craft works well with our O is for Owl Animal Alphabet activity too!
Materials Needed for the Pom Pom Stamped Snowy Owl Painting
- Large Pom-Pom
- White Acrylic Paint
- Black, Brown, Green, Yellow & Orange construction paper
- Glue stick
- Star Stickers (optional)
- Small Bowl or a paper plate to hold paint
Pour a generous amount of white paint in a small bowl. Tape your black construction paper onto a flat surface or workplace. Dip a large pom-pom in the paint and dab in an 8 shape at one end of the paper.
Similarly dab three little owl structures on the paper. Let it dry completely.
Once the stamp art is completely dry, tear a branch like structure from a brown paper bag. Join two or more pieces if your torn paper is too small.
Crumple the paper by rolling between your palms to add texture. Using a glue stick, paste the brown paper at one end of the artwork in the shape of a branch.
Make sure there is one branch that is just below the owls. Encourage kids to create their own design. There is no “right” way here, so help them make it.
Cut out eyes, a beak, claws, and leaves from the papers. Using markers add more details like the veins on the leaves & the iris.
Add some star stickers to complete your Snow Owl Craft.
A good book to accompany this craft would be Owl Babies by Martin Waddell.
Aren’t they the cutest?
