  • yellow and white construction paper
  • cotton balls
  • glue
  • googly eyes
  • large pine cone and small pine cones
  • scissors
  • poly-fil stuffing
  • toothpick

What You Do

  • STEP 1: Poke Cotton Balls Into Pine Cone

    • Use a toothpick to put little tabs of glue between the scales on a large pine cone.
    • Stretch out cotton balls. Then use a toothpick to poke the cotton balls into the pine cone.
  • STEP 2: Add Wings

    Cut two wings out of the white construction paper. Glue a little bit of stretched cotton on each wing. Glue the wings to the pine cone.

  • STEP 3: Add Eyes and Bill

    • Break off a pine cone scale and glue it between the eyes to make the owl’s bill.
  • STEP 4: Make Owl Chicks

    Follow the same instructions to make Mom except use small pine cones and poly-fil stuffing instead of cotton balls.
