Holiday Specked Owls are an easy adorable craft that you can make for the holiday or anytime. Little Dude and I make our Owls to give as gifts. We created our own-specked color paper. We used the Color Wonder Air Brush by Crayola. It is awesome! I’ll stop there for a second and tell you about it.
The Color Wonder Airbrush is awesome. Little Dude and I had a blast using it. You just attach a Crayola Color Wonder marker, push the button, and the airbrush sprays a mist on the special Color Wonder paper and within seconds the colors appear. Best part of all there is no mess. I know, the whole airbrush thing sounds a little scary, but trust me there is no mess. The airbrush comes with 6 Color Wonder Markers, 3 themed stencil sheets for creating, and a Color Wonder Paper Pad.
Little Dude chose to use just the sprayer and not use any of the stencils to create his paper for his owls. The Crayola Color Wonder Airbrush was easy to use and has a safety shut off feature. I’m repeating but I love that it is not messy and I didn’t have to worry about getting marker stains off the table or Little Dude. Markers are one of those things I really have to watch Little Dude with or he will color himself, the walls, my furniture, or the dogs… I often tried to avoid them until I discovered Crayola Color Wonder Markers and coloring books. The Crayola Color Wonder Markers are the way little dude gets to play with markers and I don’t have to worry about cleaning for days after he uses the markers. WIN-WIN. Check out our cute Holiday Specked Owls and make some of your own!
