Crow Craft For Kids [FREE Template]

Crows are the perfect Halloween birds! Who knows why they came to be associated with spooky things.

We actually love watching them and their behavior!

Whether you want a non-spooky Halloween craft or you’re simply teaching the kids about birds, this paper crow craft is perfect.

It’s the newest addition to our Halloween crafts for kids and we think it’s perfect for fall.

Begin by gluing the wing to the body of the crow.

Next glue the beak to the top of the crow’s head.

Glue the printable eye or a googly eye on the crow’s head, just behind the beak area.

Finally, make the crow’s legs. We made each of the crows legs differently. To make the legs look like the one in the video, place two yellow rectangles in an off-centered “x”. Glue them together then cut off the excess paper on the right side of the “x”.

Repeat these steps for both legs.

Glue the completed legs behind the crow’s body, on the circular part, just below the wing.

I have tried to print/download a couple of crafts (corn cob, and the crow). When I try to print the actual template, there's no place to click. There is a box that says Free template, but you can't click on it. Can you please help me with this? Thank you.
