Lunch is always better when you have a wise companion to join in the fun! This wide-eyed owl is a great way for your growing learner to practice cutting triangles and circles and arranging them to create an unexpected creature.

What You Need:

  • Brown lunch bag
  • Construction paper (Black and yellow)
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Pencil

What You Do:

  1. Help your child put tomorrow's lunch in the paper bag. Fold the flap down, and fold under the side edges as if you're making a paper airplane. The folded part of the bag will be the base of the owl's beak.
  2. Ask your child to draw three triangles on the black paper and cut them out. Attach two as ears on the top part of the bag, opposite the flap.
  3. Have her glue the third triangle on as an extension of the beak.
  4. Ask her to cut out two large circles from the yellow paper and two medium circles from the black paper.
  5. Encourage her to glue the black circles on the yellow circles in the same place on both.
  6. Help her tuck the eyes under the folded over paper bag and glue them in place.
  7. Have her place a small amount of glue under the beak to seal the bag.

Encourage your little owl to enjoy her lunch with a wise new friend!
