To make the Toilet Roll Owl, you will need the following items:

  • Toilet Roll Owl Template
  • 1 Toilet Roll
  • Paint or colouring supplies
  • Scissors
  • Glue


  1. Use your thumb to press down on the top of the toilet roll about 1 inch from the edge. This will cause the roll to collapse.
  2. Turn the roll around and repeat the same step on the opposite side.
  3. Repeat this process for the bottom of the roll
  4. Paint or colour the toilet roll
  5. Colour the template
  6. Cut out the template
  7. Glue the feathers to the owl starting at the bottom and working your way up. You may not need all of the feathers. You can overlap the feathers slightly for a more realistic look
  8. Glue on the beak and eyes then the wings on the sides
  9. Congratulations! You have completed your owl!

The Loch Doon area was memorialized in celebrated Scottish poet, Robert Burns piece “Ye banks and braes O’ bonnie Doon”

Ye banks and braes o’ bonny Doon,
How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair?
How can ye chant, ye little birds,
And I sae weary fu’ o’ care?
Thou’lt break my heart, thou warbling bird,
That wantons thro’ the flowering thorn:
Thou minds me o’ departed joys,
Departed, never to return.

Aft hae I rov’d by bonnie Doon,
To see the rose and woodbine twine;
And ilka bird sang o’ its love,
And fondly sae did I o’ mine.
Wi’ lightsome heart I pu’d a rose,
Fu’ sweet upon its thorny tree;
And my fause lover stole my rose,
But, ah! he left the thorn wi’ me.
