Owl Babies by Martin Waddell
It's a story about 3 baby owls that wake up in the middle of the night to find their mommy is gone. After waking, they go through a series of emotions before mommy returns home.
Kiley loved the book and we read it lots of times throughout the week.
Make An Owl Puppet
With some felt, feathers from the craft store, googly eyes and glue, Kiley made a pretty cute owl. She named him Fuzzy Pants.
Learn About Nocturnal Animals
Nocturnal means awake; active at night. Discuss different animals that are nocturnal. Try that night going out in your backyard or for a walk and find some nocturnal animals!
Make An Owl Nest
Take a walk through the park or a wooded area and search for: feathers, twigs, leaves, pine needles, etc. You can take an old bird house that has a hole in it or if you don't have that use a tall brown paper sack and cut a hole into it. Place your findings and make bedding for your owl nest in your "makeshift tree" from the bird house or bag.
