Craft Supplies needed to create the owl handprint:

- Baby wipes!! It helps to have these handy so you don’t make a complete mess of your table!
How to use the owl handprint template
This owl template printable is free to print but is for personal and classroom use only. Scroll to the bottom of the post and add your email address to get the pdf file.
Print out the free template below, there are three pages in total.
If you are printing on colored paper please only print the first page. The second and third pages are the Halloween stickers, and these will definitely look better printed on white paper.
You can of course print this on normal printer paper, but with all of our crafts, they always look better on cardstock.
The first page is the owl handprint template.
The other two pages are stickers that you can cut around and add to the owl handprint art.
Grab the supplies above and get creating!
Let the kids decide what color handprints they want to use. We have made them with both orange and blue wings, and they both looked super cute.
Use a small paintbrush to add a thin layer of paint to their hand. Make sure you have the wipes handy!!
Cover their hands with paint and place their hands upwards from the body of the owl. Press down all along their hand to make sure the handprint transfers fully.
Pull the child’s hand up carefully, ensuring you don’t smudge the handprint.
Let it dry completely before adding googly eyes and stickers.
Cut out the stickers and let the kids decide whether they want to add them to this picture or to another one.
It might be a fun way to decorate the trick-or-treat bags too with the stickers.
This is the second one we created with blue wings, and added the wiggly eyes.
