Owls Crafts: When My Kids Are Bored

Do you also feel that if your children are bored it’s your problem? That it’s your job to keep them busy?

Let’s clear this first: It’s not your problem if they’re bored. Let them be bored, and let them learn to keep themselves busy (or not). Boredom is good for children, and encourages creativity.

Now, if you still feel you need to keep them busy (what can I say, I always do…) well…

I am an owls addict!

Collected for you some owls crafts ideas for various ages, toddlers up:

So many creative idea’s, I don’t know where to start.

While we’re at it, one of my favorite owl sites is my owl barn, publishing this yearly amazing free download owls calendar, a collaboration of many great artists.

See some of the artwork, I just can’t stop looking at it:

  1. My daughter is rarely bored, because she crafts. She likes owls, so I’m sending her your link. I bet she’s going to be wanting to make some of your owls!

  2. I have a Cricut die cutter machine and owl invitations and themed parties are popular. Along with owl cards. Finally loaded one of my owl pillows,!

  3. Reblogged this on Celebration Of Children and commented:
    Needing a craft project to do with kids this summer.
    How about OWLS >>>>>>>>>>>

  4. This is great! The owls are ADORABLE:) And it’s so true – kids should have the privilege of being bored 🙂

  5. These are neat ideas! I’ll have to keep these in mind for once my kid is old enough to craft with me! 🙂

  6. I really like the concept of owls here. Great job with the blog too! I changed mine so it is no longer krafyshila.WordPress.com but kraftykakes.blogspot.ca

  7. Hi! I nominated you for The Loyal Reader and Wonderful Team Membership Awards. Please get the badges at http://wp.me/p32YrK-pv and get more info. Enjoy and have a great day!

  8. This is a wonderful idea. I am planning to start a new tradition with my grand daughter/son to create “friday night art” after having “friday night pizza”. One day…..:)

  9. Aww, brilliant! I was never bored as a child, always had something or far too much to do, and still am never bored – I cannot understand why people can be bored but then again… Anyway, I do love owls and this post! Thanks!
