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 Do:
- 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.
- 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.
- Have her glue the third triangle on as an extension of the beak.
- Ask her to cut out two large circles from the yellow paper and two medium circles from the black paper.
- Encourage her to glue the black circles on the yellow circles in the same place on both.
- Help her tuck the eyes under the folded over paper bag and glue them in place.
- 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!
