Paper Bag Owl added 9-30-98 Original Author Unknown

Need: Paper bag, constructions paper, crayons, newspaper, and twigs

Directions: Then we made an owl out of a paper bag. You cut an upside down U in the open end of the bag to leave 2 feet. You add 2 pointed ears, a diamond mouth and two eyes. Have the children color lines for his hair and add two black claws. Stuff the bag with some newspaper. That day we went on a walk and we each looked for a twig. We used that twig to perch the owl on. Just put the twig near the bottom of the owl and staple the bag together.

Need: Paper plates (the kind with the ridged edges), circles of orange construction paper for eyes, V-shaped pieces of orange construction paper for bills and claws, a magic marker, brown tempera paint, and glue. 

Directions: Using the magic marker, draw cutting lines on each paper plate at 10, 2, 5 and 7 O'clock, and along the inner edge of the ridges (these will be the wings). Have the children cut their plates on the lines, then have them paint the pieces of the paper plate with brown tempera paint and let dry. Staple the owl's wings to the bodies for the children (or use brads for more moveable wings). Have the children glue the eyes, beaks and claws onto their owls.
