Tot School Owls

Tot School

Mr. Blue Sky is 24 months old.

We had a fun owl themed week. We read some books that featured owls (reviewed here):

  1. A Book of Sleep written & illustrated by Il Sung Na
  2. Little Owl Lost written & illustrated by Chris Haughton
  3. Wow! Said the Owl written & illustrated by Tim Hopgood
  4. Whoo Goes There? written by Jennifer A Ericsson & illustrated by Bert Kitchen
  5. Oliver’s Wood written & illustrated by Sue Hendra

We got a set of Do-A-Dot markers (reviewed here) and MBS had a blast drawing with them. At DLTK, I printed out  a rhyme, owl coloring sheets, and a neat paper bag craft. MBS decorated all of them with his new markers.

We also made some O’s, using printout from Confessions of a Homeschooler and hand drawn O’s.

I read about making your own lacing cards on Tot School. I cut out one of the owl shapes from a coloring sheet and used that as a pattern to cut and owl out of a piece of foam. This was MBS first time doing any lacing and he was easily frustrated but had a blast making the foam owl play with his stuffed owl.

As a wrap up to our owl week I made some owl cookies. I used ideas from here and here to make them.
