So I found this idea on a site from a hit on my site meter. Unfortunately, I could not really find the original link it came from. So if this was your idea...let me know & I'll give you credit!! Summer is a fun time to try some new ideas out. This may be the only one I get to with baby Eli's arrival fast approaching!
This is just one more thing you can do with toilet paper roll!! You could use a whole TP roll, but it would be an extremely tall owl! ha ha So you'll need to trim an inch or so off the bottom. Press the sides in of the opening. You can use hot glue, tape, or Zots(scrap booking dots). I gave it one coat of acrylic paint. It may need more than one depending on the color of paint you are using. Since I used a creamy light blue, one was enough. I used scrap book paper for the wings, belly, beak, and white of it's eyes. Googly eyes would be super fun here too, but I did not have any at home. I used a shot of glue and glitter for the center of the eyes. I'm going to do it with at least one grade level in the fall. Can you imagine 100 + of these cute critters clustered together!?!
