Who’s Who? Owl Craft for Kids

One of my favorite projects for the beginning of the school year is this who’s who owl craft and writing activity! Children use paper bags to make owls and then write clues on the front about themselves for their classmates to guess- a perfect getting to know you activity. The owls make a great fall bulletin board for the classroom too!

Each fall I’d have my class make these paper bag owls. They loved trying to guess which owl belonged to each of their classmates based on the clues each child wrote on the front! You can print out your own writing page to fit on the front of your owl, or simply do the owl craft without the writing component, creating a paper bag owl puppet! (This post contains affiliate links. )

Directions for Paper Bag Owl Craft

1. You’ll need to start with a perfect 9-inch square to create the wings to your owl. Take a 9 x 12 inch brown sheet of construction paper and fold one corner up so the edge lines up perfectly with the top of the paper. Cut off the leftover paper on the left hand side. Unfold the paper to reveal your brown construction paper square!

2. Now it’s time to add the wings to the paper bag. Turn the brown square so it resembles a diamond and place it behind your paper bag. Fold down the top triangle and glue it to the bag.  Cut off the top two sections of the wings.

3. Cut out some circles for eyes and glue them to your bag.

4. Add smaller black circles to complete the eyes. Use orange paper to make a beak.

5. If you’d like, print out the free “Who Am I?” printable. Write some clues about yourself onto the paper. Glue just the top portion of the filled out paper to your owl. Fold the paper up  and draw a picture of yourself directly onto the bag. When you put the clue paper back down, it should cover your picture. Now classmates can read your clues and then lift the paper to see if their guesses as to who made the owl are correct!
