"Hoo" has the coolest lunch bag? Your kid will when he creates this owl's head lunch bag topper. Celebrate the changing seasons with this rustic-inspired owl design. This activity is a great way to practice cutting and layering colored papers to form the owl's head. After lunch, keep the design and attach it to the cover of a journal and inspire your little one to compose all kinds of tall tales!

What You Need:

  • Paper lunch bag
  • Construction paper (orange, yellow, black)
  • Dark, medium-sized pom
  • Glue stick
  • Mini stapler
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

What You Do:

  1. Help your child fill his lunch sack with a yummy lunch, fold the flap and staple it down once in the center. Set this aside, or in the refrigerator if you'd like.
  2. Ask your child to fold and cut a sheet of orange paper in half. Draw the owl's head on the orange paper to fill up as much space as possible. The head is a giant oval, with two points for ears.
  3. Have him cut out the owl's head and set it aside.
  4. Ask him to fold and cut a sheet of yellow paper in half. Fold one of the halves in half again. On the edge that's folded, draw a large circle sitting on two lines. Cut this out and open it to unfold the owl's mask.
  5. Glue the eyes to the face.
  6. Fold a small square of black paper in half. Ask your child to draw a circle and cut it out with the paper folded, producing two circles. Glue the circle onto the eyes.
  7. Glue the pom in place to give the owl a nose.
  8. Have him to attach the owl mask to the front of his lunch bag using the glue stick.
  9. Time for lunch!
