This is the stART project we did last week, that I never got posted. This idea came from Michelle at A Mommy’s Adventure. We read the book “Who Hoots?” by Katie Davis. This is a funny little book that follows the sounds different animals make (or don’t make). It is also followed up with a fact about that animal. It follows a pattern like this:
“Dogs don’t hoot. Pigs don’t hoot. Horses don’t hoot. Owls don’t hoot. Owls don’t hoot? YES THEY DO!”
For our project we made an owl out of paper plates. Will always enjoys painting and gluing, so this was a perfect project for him.
First, Will painted two paper plates with brown craft paint. While we let these dry, we took a quick trip to Cherryberry for some frozen yogurt yumminess!
You can see that I cut small ears out of one of the paper plates. Once the paint is dry, cut the second paper plate in half to create the owl’s wings. I cut out 3 various sizes of circles for the eyes (white, yellow & black) using my Cricut machine. Will glued the circles on top of each other to make a set of eyes. We also cut a triangle from orange paper to make the beak.
Last, I tried to glue the wing to the owl’s head. This did not hold so I ended up stapling them.
So proud of his work!
