Owl Finger Puppet

Owls seem to be a classic Halloween image and this craft is very easy for children to make on their own.
The owl requires some origami folding and the owl’s features are decorated with a black ink pen.
We made several owls in different colours and arranged them on a branch to use as a pretty decoration for the whole autumn season. However, this owl also makes a great finger puppet.

You will need:
Origami paper 15cm x15cm
Black ink pen
