This printable took forever to make. It doesn’t look like much but it was a lot of work. Totally worth it though. The end product is adorable. Unlike the “preview” below, the printable is two parts: head and body parts. The eyes are disassembled so that each layer can be painted and glued together. This gives it a little more depth and allows younger kids to do it – I mean, who can paint perfectly inside lines? There’s a little wiggle room for error this way.
Materials We Used:
- 3 pieces of Cardstock – you’ll need heavier paper to paint on.
- Paint, pink and red
- 2 large googly eyes (optional – regular printed eyes are included.)
- Glitter Glue for belly swirls (also optional)
Print off the two printable sheets and have your child paint each part as shown above. Once dry, cut each part out and glue it down in layers. The eyes should be assembled: large circle, flower, smaller circle with black dot (or google eye).
Once all of the parts are glued down, use your glitter glue to add cute curlies on the belly.
I then glued the entire owl down onto another sheet of cardstock that had a printed quote “Owl Love You Forever” on it. Personalize it with your favorite saying, quote, or just Happy Valentines Day.
This is so easy. Lorelai loves to paint so she ate it right up. It took a bit to cut out all of the pieces but the end result is adorable, I think. Lore was so happy with it as well. She can’t wait to give it to her Daddy tonight! You know, because she (*cough*I*cough*) can’t wait until V-Day!
