What to do with a big bag of t.p. tubes….turn ’em into owls, of course! I was inspired by the many projects floating around Pinterest and on other art teacher blogs that use t.p. tubes, so my 4th graders and I began an experiment in problem solving to create our owls.
We smooshed the t.p. tube top down and taped it with colored tape to create the head. Next we wrapped yarn around the base for color, added cardboard wings, feathers, and a nice beak. We used some little condiment cups from my stash of donated supplies for the eyes, and finished our birds with big google eyes.
