"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
What You Do:
- 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.
- 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.
- Have him cut out the owl's head and set it aside.
- 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.
- Glue the eyes to the face.
- 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.
- Glue the pom in place to give the owl a nose.
- Have him to attach the owl mask to the front of his lunch bag using the glue stick.
- Time for lunch!
