What is it about owls, especially baby owls, that make them so absolutely adorable? Many fun characteristics come to mind – that’s for sure! If your family is in need of a daily owl fix, this Facebook page called OWLS will help. Check out some of their clever videos for inspiration and then get ready to make your own mini owl to call your own at home. It’s sure to be a “hoot!”


  • Empty toilet paper tube
  • Construction paper in brown, light brown, white and yellow
  • Googly eyes
  • Circle paper punches – small and large
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Clear tape


To get started, trim a piece of brown construction paper to the width of your toilet paper tube.

Wrap the paper around the tube, using your clear tape to secure into place.

Pinch the top of the toilet paper tube to create a pointy top to your owl.

To make the owl’s eyes, punch out two white circles with a medium-sized paper punch, and then two yellow circles with a smaller circle punch. Glue together with a glue stick, finishing them by adding a googly eye to each piece.

For wings, cut out two leaf-shaped pieces from the light brown construction paper and adhere to the back of the owl with your glue stick. To create an owl belly, cut out a circle for the front of the owl, adding your own “feather” decorations.
