With the kids back in school and pre-school, chances are you’re looking for some new fun and easy crafts to support their learning. If your children are learning about nocturnal animals, woodland creatures or just love the cute wide-eyed bird, then this moving eyes owl craft is for you.

Let’s Make a Moving Eyes Owl Craft:
Decorate the Moving Eyes Owl Template
Let’s start by painting the owl template. The owl’s body is made up of different sections – the wings, head and body – so you can use them to mix up contrasting colours and textures to create a bold design for your owl.
And when you’ve painted the base colors, don’t forget to add some extra detail. We’ve painted little curves on the owls tummy that look like soft feathers, and used the top of a pen dipped in paint to create a dotty pattern on the wings. But you can use your imagination and add any decorations you like!
Cut out the Template Elements
Once your owl is finished and dry, carefully cut out the elements from the template. Then cut one strip lengthwise from a sheet of colored A4 card – it needs to be the same thickness as the rectangle eyes on the template.
Finally, cut two more thin strips of card, each three or four inches long.
Create An Eye Strip
Stick the rectangle eyes into the middle of the large colored strip of card.
Secure the Strip
Turn your owl over. Now stick one of the thinner card strips vertically over the left eye – this will support your owl’s moving eyes. Stick the other strip in the same way over the right eye.
Slide the Eye Strip
Now carefully slide the strip of eyes underneath the two thin support strips – be gentle!
