Little Hoot by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Jen Corace is a fun story that children will want to return to. Extend the enjoyment by creating the Little Hoot Garden Pot Owl from a peat pot and cardstock. These owls are so fun and simple to make that you may decide to make Little Hoot's whole family!

What you'll need:

  • 1 small peat garden pot
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • 1 nickel
  • 1 dime
  • 1 small piece of orange, tan, black, yellow, and dark brown cardstock
How to make your little hoot craft:
  • Cut a small diamond shape out of the orange cardstock. Trace a nickel onto the brown cardstock two times and cut out both circles. Trace a dime onto the yellow cardstock two times and cut out both circles. Cut out two black circles that are smaller than the size of a dime. Cut an oval out of the tan cardstock for the owl's body. (see photos)
  • Glue the tan oval to the bottom of the peat garden pot as the body of the owl. Allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
  • Glue the two brown circles together so that they are slightly overlapping. Glue the two yellow circles directly on top, followed by the two black circles. Glue the eyes to the top of the peat pot, directly above the tan oval body. Allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
  • Glue the orange diamond directly centered below the owl's eyes. This is the owl's beak. Allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
  • Cut out two small wing-shaped pieces of brown cardstock and glue to the center on either side of the peat garden pot. Allow the glue to dry. (see photos)
  • Your Little Hoot Garden Pot Owl is now complete. Set him on your nightstand when you go to bed or tuck him in at night!
