Winter Owl Handprint Craft
Some of the reasons we love handprint crafts are that they’re simple and cheap to make! All you’ll need is some colored paper, scissors, and glue. It doesn’t get much easier than that, right?
In case you’re curious, we prefer using colored card stock over construction paper because we love the vibrant colors of the card stock. If colored card stock isn’t an option for you, feel free to use construction paper!

Place the white owl’s face at the top of the owl’s body and glue it in place.
Glue the owl’s beak so it’s halfway on the face and halfway on the body.
Make the owl’s eyes by gluing the black circle onto the larger yellow circles.
Place the completed eyes in the middle of the owl’s white face and glue them down.
Glue the owl’s feet at the bottom of the owl’s body, letting half of the feet hang over the bottom of the body.
