I have posted before about paper tube crafts and I am still really attracted to them for kids' crafting projects [and even adults - if you haven't seen these gorgeous tubes you must take a peak!].
So, when I saw Silly Eagle Book's tutorial on creating a family of paper tube owls, I thought it would be an ideal autumn crafting activity for my girls. The timing was right. Miss Lily wasn't herself this past weekend (feverish off and on), but had enough energy that she wanted to craft (yeah!).
When kids are ill and you are cooped indoors being a hoarder comes in handy, so long as it is organized hoarding. I had just about everything on hand - including those tubes that she stopped me from tossing earlier in the week.
This is a fun little activity which is easy for the kids and I was so glad I had everything on hand (hurray for stashes!). The girls were so pleased with the little owl family (which has since moved to our mantel) and it started a very long conversation about owls. I hope the conversation doesn't end.
