Some people are ridiculously in love with cats or shoes, but me…you can call me the crazy owl lady. I love, love owls and owl crafts! The kids craft stars challenge this month is all about sticks so after collecting a few handfuls we turned them into my most favorite thing of course, an owl. This stick owl craft for kids is so fun since it is made almost entirely of nature elements. You can create an entire afternoon full of fun by going on a nature walk to collect all of your supplies and then come home to make this adorable owl craft.

How to Make a Stick Owl Craft for Kids
- leaves (we used dried out leaves but you could also use fresh)
- small round rocks
- Fun Chalk Markers
- tacky glue
1. Start by cutting out the shape of an owl from your cardboard. Lay out your sticks on your cardboard shape, adjusting them to make them straight and break off or cutting any pieces to make them fit the shape.
2. Use your tacky glue to glue all of your sticks onto your cardboard. Then glue your leaves on for wings, your rocks for eyes and another small stick for a beak.
3. Use your Fun Chalk Markers to color in the eyes, the beak and to add some fun color and feather texture onto your owl craft.
