In this post: Fun treats, crafts, and activities for owls and scarecrows! Some art for older kids too!
Hello, Dear Ones! How are you? I love owls and Autumn is the perfect time to study them. Both of my boys made owl art. We also had scarecrow fun. Here’s how…
- Barn Owl Charcoal and Pastel Painting– Michael drew and painted this beautiful owl. We were inspired by this post: http://artdishwithmj.blogspot.com/2011/04/charcoal-and-pastel-owls.html
- Leeland and I made a foam owl using feathers and glass stones (for the eyes).
- I printed these Fall Readers for Leeland. He liked looking at the pictures. One of the books is all about owls. You can get them here: https://www.themeasuredmom.com/free-fall-sight-word-books/
- I made this yarn owl painting. It’s hard to read but it says “God is everywhere”, our theme during Sukkot.
- This cute book The Midnight Library has lots of sweet owls. The artwork is lovely.
- Handprint Scarecrow Mixed Media Art– I was inspired by this post for Leeland’s handprint scarecrow. I decided to add the fabric.
- Then we watched and sang I’m a Little Scarecrow. I made Leeland a scarecrow hat from a bowl and yarn. Leeland painted it brown.
- We had scarecrow crunch! I put candy corn, pretzels, Bugles, raisins, and dried pineapple bits in ours.
- We brought out our homemade scarecrow from years ago and put him outside.
- We read scarecrow books and watched several youtube videos. I’ll share my favorite next.
The Lonely Scarecrow is a sweet short film.
Well, God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
