Note: This fun art project would be great for older children, as well and they can do so many of the steps themselves.
You will need:
- Pre-made templates for owls and eyes (see instructions below) Also, canning jar lid or something circular to trace for eyes. Smaller lid for pupil
- Construction paper for the background in your color choice
- White construction paper for owl body
- Orange construction paper for beaks and feet
- Black Fine Point Sharpies for signing names
- Glue (for older children, give them each their own glue) For preschoolers and the interest of time, teacher does the gluing
- Scissors to cut out owl body and eyes (older children can do their own)
- Tempera or acrylic paint in various colors
- Little tubs or lids to pour paint into for making dots and finger marks on owls
Lets get started: Making the templates for tracing (Teacher does this)
(You can have the children color in the pupil with crayon or you can do it ahead of time)
Now for the owls!
For Preschoolers, teacher can trace the owls and eyes onto white construction paper (using the templates) and cut out and glue ahead of time. (Older children could do this themselves) Also, cut little triangles for beaks and half circles for feet
I laid out pre-glued owls and little boxes of crayons. (Hint: the boxes are the plastic ones that mushrooms come in. I love them for so many storage ideas)
Now for the handprint wings!
HERE'S A FUN ART ROOM/CLASSROOM HACK:
