I am so excited to share this sweet owl craft with you. It is all about using materials you can find on a nature walk or in your backyard and turn them into an adorable little owl.
P.S. if you want some tips for a nature walk or a fun spin to put on it, check out this Fall on the Farm Scavenger Hunt.
These little owls are so cute and a great way to have your preschooler work on creative skills!
