Today we made owls we discussed how they hunt for food while we are sleeping and how well their eyes work at night so they can catch their food.

Fun owl fact-Owls are unable to move their eyes within their sockets to a great extent, which means they must turn their entire head to see in a different direction. Because owls have forward-facing eyes, they have well-developed binocular vision.

so to make our owls you need:
 a toilet paper tube for each child
goggle eyes
and a beak shape

give each child a toilet paper tube with the top squished down this will make the head shape

have each child paint the roll

and place the beak and eyes we did not need glue the eyes and beak stick fine on the paint
once they dry we will hang them in our tree :)

  1. so to add to this I got some binoculars at the 99 cent store and let the kids see how the owl sees items closer than they are thats how he can see teeny tiny mice from up high
