DIY Valentine Series – You’re a HOOT Owl Valentine Treat
Pin to Pinterest
This sweet owl not only makes a pretty valentine to share with classmates but he holds yummy candy too! He is almost too cute to break open but I don’t think the little ones will have any problem investigating what’s inside. This craft is upcycling at it’s best – keep those empty toilet paper tubes (or paper towel rolls can be cut in half). Set up a little assembly line at your table, you and the kids can have these done in no time at all. Use wrapping or scrapbook paper to wrap you owls in a variety of designs or make them all the same. I personally like the 12×12 scrapbook paper because it comes in so many patterns and you can get 4 owls from each sheet. You could also fill these with erasers, rubber bracelets, lip gloss, temporary tattoos , small individual packages of goldfish, pretzels, or other little party favors instead of candy.
