Arctic Animals

I saw this really cute snowy owl and knew we had to make it!  We have an abundance of pine cones so any excuse to use them in a craft is great.  Eva began by pulling apart a few cotton balls and stuffing the bits into the pinecone.
When he was snowy enough we added a foam beak and googly eyes.  So simple and so cute!
Last year we also made some North Pole pals.  You can check out our torn paper polar bear,
a sock seal,
and a snowy owl puppet.
Eva also made a polar bear puppet at story time this week (those ladies at Barnes and Noble must know what themes I have planned!).
(that's the polar bear's heart and mittens- he didn't just finish a meal)


  1. These are just adorable crafts!! Love them :-)
    Have a great weekend!


  2. All the crafts are cute, but I especially love the pinecone snowy owl. It's cute. I've included your post on my weekly favorites here:

  3. Love the snowy owl. They turned out so cute. We were going to try them last week at Mommy and Me, but our pine cones were way too pointy. This week we read a book called Antarctic Antics and did fun crafts and games, too. So your link on NTFF caught my eye.

  4. They are all so wonderful. Really great!

  5. Very cool! My daughter's favorite owl is the snowy owl and we've been reading "Over in the Arctic" we'll have to try this out. I shared your snowy owl on twitter (@candaceapril) and facebook (Naturally Educational). Thanks for the great idea!

  6. I just wanted to touch base with you - Green Kids Crafts is selling a magazine and including your image with no credit in their online magazine. Hopeing you OK'd this - if not HUGS. Your image is so cute and you deserve the credit!!!

  7. This is so cute! I have a friend that loves owls. She would love this!
