Owls in the night

You need:

  1. blue construction paper 15 by 20 cm
  2. white tempera paint
  3. piece of cardboard
  4. brush
  5. saucer
  6. paper towel
  7. fine black marker
  8. yellow pencil


Draw a moon and colour it with yellow pencil. Paint the bottom of the blue sheet white with tempera paint.



Put a paper towel on a saucer. Put a stripe of white tempera paint on the towel. The paper towel will function as a stamp pad. Dip the edge of a piece of cardboard into the white paint and print a trunk. Drag the cardboard a bit to create a thicker trunk. Print several branches. Be sure to leave some space between the branches for the owls.



Use a fingertop and white paint to print the body of the owls. Leave the work to dry.



Draw eyes with a yellow pencil. Outline the eyes with a fine black marker. Draw details like feathers, beak and legs.



Print snow flakes using a q-tip or the end of a brush.
