Snowy owl craft for kids
Snowy Owls are white owls found largely in the Arctic. They have golden colored eyes and brown specks throughout their feathers. As the owls grow older, they begin to lose the darker specks of color in their feathers. Most owls are nocturnal or are active at night. Snowy Owls hunt during the day, however. These big birds are remarkably interesting animals! They also make a beautiful subject for an art project.

2. Use a fork to scrape the white paint in all directions. Turn the paper as you scrape. This will help distribute the paint. Be careful not to tear the paper with too much pressure on the fork.
3. Add another inch diameter of paint to the left and down from your first pour. Scrape similarly, in all directions, to the first pour.
