How to Make a Letter O Craft

1. Print out the owl craft.

2. Color in the O, the horns, and the beak. Trace the letters for the word ‘owl.’

3. Encourage your little one to try cutting out some elements for this letter O craft. The outside of the O and the beak may be the easiest for them to cut. Use the dotted line as a guide for where to cut.

To cut out the inside of the O, lightly fold the O in half and make a small cut on the fold (on the dotted line). Unfold the O, stick your scissors into the hole, and cut around the inside of the O.
