You will need:

Polystyrene ball
Paper cup
2 shades of brown paint
PVA glue
Wiggle eyes
Orange paper
Brown paper
Brown felt pen


  • Paint the cup light brown and the ball dark brown. Tip – mixing some PVA glue into the paint helps it cover better. Leave to dry.
  • Glue the ball onto the bottom of the cup.
  • Draw wavy lines across the cup to mark the tummy feathers.
  • Cut out two brown paper wings and glue these on.
  • Cut an orange beak and two feet and glue them to the owl.
  • Finish with a pair of wiggle eyes!
