Autumn Owls

During our autumn unit we learn all about owls! This year we decided to make fall colored owls. This was such a fun project (and makes for a very nice colorful display!). 
2 large paper plates
1 small paper plate
Googly eyes
hot glue (this is to make sure that everything stays together once you hang it up)

To start, I took the small paper plate and cut a small square out of the top (to help it look like the head of an owl). Then I took one of the large paper plates and cut it in half (to make the wings).
 Next we painted all of our pieces.
 Once the pieces were dry we decorated our owls. We have been working on patterns so we practiced making a pattern on the owl's body.

Once everything was dry we put it all together! We glued the wings on first (have the flat side facing out) and then glued on the head. We made a beak for our owls by cutting out a triangle from construction paper.

Afterwards, we named our owls and hung them up on our bulletin board and placed a few of the books that we had read about owls underneath. It makes such a great autumn display!
