You're a WHoot! with printables

Owls seem to be everywhere all of a sudden. I'm not jumping on the bandwagon, but my Little Mister really likes them. I am always trying to appeal to his interests when thinking of some learning activities. So, we have owls! 

 The free printables at the end of this post include: matching, fill in the color, letter recognition, complete the pattern, counting skills, maze, pre-writing skills, trace the letter and size sorting.
I hope you will try them with your kiddos and give me some feedback. Enjoy!

But first, Whoo Loves You? We made a cute little frame to answer that question!
We painted 6 large craft sticks brown. Then, we glued them all together. We added juice lids for eyes and a construction paper beak. Little Mister picked out this particular picture that he wanted in the frame. One of my early favorites of the chunky monkey!


We also made a cute little owlet from a pine cone, two cotton balls, two google eyes, a construction paper beak and a cardboard circle. Easy and very cute!

Did you know you can dry and make your pine cones open by placing them in the oven? It also leaves a warm, earthy smell in your house! Love it.

Some great owl-ee books we enjoyed also:

Here are our owl-lovin' printables for the week! If you try them please give me some feedback. I want to know what you liked or (gulp) disliked about them. Thanks and enjoy!

  8. Owls are oddly addictive - you're right. Not quite sure how that happened! I like the little pine cone owl the best.
