Little Owl’s Night Craft and Snack Ideas- Read.Explore.Learn.

As you read the story Little Owl’s Night, you get  travel along with Little Owl as he travels through the air watching all the other nocturnal animals. There are fireflies dancing, moths fluttering toward the moon, and so much more.  This tale takes you from the beginning of the night to the end of an evening just as Little Owl goes to sleep.
The picture and words in this beautiful book flow. We were introduced to this book during a local story time. I loved watching and listening to this story unfold.

What did we do to explore this book?
Owl Craft

Owl Craft with Cupcake Liner Eyes

We created a torn paper owl with cupcake liner eyes! The torn paper was added to cutout of an owl to make him look like he has feathers.  Then orange paper was used to give the owl a beak and claws.  After gluing on two cupcake liners yellow circles and smaller black circles were added to complete the owl’s eyes.He looks ready to take in all the late night creatures and events. I love the texture the torn paper adds to the owl!

When the owl was dry, he was glued to a piece of black paper. The paper makes the various colors of the owl pop!


Owl Sandwich


Owl Sandwich by JDaniel4's Mom

JDaniel had an owl sandwich created with Colby Jack cheese and whole grain bread to celebrate our study of owls. The cheese used for his feathers has tiny triangles cut out of it to give it a feathery effect. The owl’s ears, feet and beak are also made of cheese. His eyes are small round tomato pieces with tiny pieces of olives on top.
Here are some wonderful ways to explore books that people linked up last week:

    Sorry to make your list messy. Please feel free to delete 8, my computer was acting up and it put in a wrong link and I compounded it by entering a field incorrectly.

    Thanks for the hooty fun!

    I love these! My daughter just told me she wants an owl cake for her next birthday – we might have to have some owl sandwiches with it! I’d never heard of flip chute but this is so cute we might have to try it.
