God Made Everything

This week, we’re taking a look at at the creation of the world, and spending a day on each of the components of creation.  During the “Fish and Birds” day, we focused owls, since Fall is a classic time to take a closer look at owls.  That works for us! Chipmunk has been getting interested in owls ever since she started listening to Goodnight Blue – A Nighttime Musical Adventure.  In the CD, an owl comes out and talks to Steve about how she eats her breakfast at night.  Of course, this is both fascinating and hilarious to a 2 year old, so the obsession with owls begins!

O is for Owl

Last weekend, we were at Asbury Woods (a great family outing in Erie, PA) and spotted this owl.  A perfect way to introduce the theme!

For our first owl project, we made this fun feather covered friend:

Let’s get started!

What You Need:

What You Do:

After printing off the owl coloring page, show the kids how to glue a feather onto the owl.  Encourage them to line the feathers up with the owl’s feathers.

I put the feathers on a plate to try and contain them a bit, but I assure you I was sweeping them off the floor for days!

We added giant googly eyes onto one owl and that was a nice touch!

The girls loved this activity so much, they were begging to do another owl.  Of course, I had only printed off enough coloring pages for one each, so we made little Turkeys with our hand prints and continued with the feather fun!
