|This Owl Cupcake is taken from Wilton...I'd use a candy corn for the beak|
|This owl cookie is from Mrs. Attaya's First Grade website. I still like the candy corn beak better.|
Mrs. Attaya's website had a good idea for using lima bean "owls" for counters to make individual word problems. They had scenes of a tree and a moon and the kids put the owls on the tree and the moon and then wrote word problems. My students could draw the tree and moon and do the same using maybe some fingerprint owls. Here is a picture of her darling counters.
|From That Artist Woman|
I really loved this owl from That Artist Woman the very best. I am going to try a variation on this. I bought feathers from Michaels in earth tones and I've been collecting twigs since we've been having tons of windstorms here in Utah. I like the idea of 3D. So I'm going to use the egg carton eyes from the paper bag puppet owl and do some white on the inside, black on the outside and wiggly eyes inside. I think it will add dimension and depth.
So I'm going to use a compilation of all these great projects I found on the web. For the body parts of the owl I think we will use tear art. It always turns out so unique and individual and I think that first day back it will be a good ice breaker art project to get to know everybody in the class too!
|This project is from Deep Space Sparkle. Awesome!|
But then I found this wonderful 2nd grade directed drawing project from Deep Space Sparkle. The link to her owl directed drawing blog is HERE. Maybe instead we will paint the owl using these earth tones. Then add the feathers, the twig and the pop out egg carton eyes. I'll have to make a model. I like the big white moon and stars. We could add some glitter glue in silver and gold for the stars. That would look cool.

|And here is what we came up with! Some cute OWLS I must say!|
|They all look so different too!|
So I'm about ready for my first day. I have my twigs and feathers, my blacklines and I'll purchase some cookie dough in the freezer section for our owl cookies. I think the kids will love our first day of school.
And I wonder WHOOOOOOOO will be in my class? :D I hope I get a WISE bunch!
