Felt Owl craft


One of our museum assistants has come up with a creative way to customise your own cotton bag.

This activity can be adapted depending on the age of your children. Older children may enjoy sewing the owl onto the bag whilst younger children can glue the pieces on.

Use our template to create your own owl or let your imagination run wild and invent your own designs.
