For our Animal Kingdom study we are doing a week on birds, particularly owls. This art project is from years ago during my internship where my lead teacher did it for our animal habitat unit.
Fold a paper plate in thirds with the sides being the owls wings. I have a dish of googly eyes and some small, orange triangles cut up. These are the kind that you peel off the back like a sticker (you can also use orange construction paper but we just happened to have a sheet of orange sticky foam!)
They first paint the owl with brown paint. I demonstrated lots of "drip catching" so it's not too thick as most owls around here have white on them as well. Then they glued on the eyes and beak!
