stART ~ Who Hoots?

Welcome to stART!  I hope that you will enjoy our story and art project and maybe even share your own too. All I ask is that you link back to A Mommy’s Adventures somewhere in your post by either adding my button or a text link, so that others can see all the other great projects that everyone shares too! The linky will be open all week.  Be sure to stop by and visit the different links…every week there are so many different and fun book and craft ideas!

Check out the  stART tab in my navigation bar where you can find our past stART projects.  All the books that we have read and did a stART project for are listed in alphabetical order.  I have also included a list of all the blogs that participate in stART.  **This is a work in progress so if you have participated at least 3 times and would like to be added to the list, leave me a comment and let me know :0)

image This week we enjoyed Who Hoots?, by Katie Davis.  This was one of Emily’s favorite books as a toddler and she continues to enjoy it now as a preschooler.  The books starts with the question “Who Hoots?” and then it is followed by a bunch of animals that don’t hoot.  Finally it says that an Owl does not hoot which is wrong and very funny to little kids.  It goes on to say that “Of course an Owl Hoots” and give a little snippet of information about the owl.  This is repeated with a few other animal sounds and at the end they want to know who can make all of these sounds?  Can you guess who???

To go along with this book we made some really cute paper plate owls.

All you need are 2 paper plates (0ne of the paper plates I trimmed the top off of to form the ears the other one was left whole), brown paint, and yellow, white and black construction paper.  IMG_0287 IMG_0288 First the girls painted their paper plates.  I squirted the paint right onto the plates and they used their fingers and paint brushes to cover the plate with.IMG_0289 IMG_0290I cut out Juliette’s owl eyes and she glued the circles together.

Emily cut out the circles for her owl’s eyes and glued them together. IMG_0293 They added a triangle for the nose.IMG_0295

Then cut one of the paper plates in half and glued them onto the other paper plate to make the wings.


Emily’s Owl

I think Emily’s owl looks like it is trying to shake some ones hand!

I like how Juliette’s is peeking to the left, they are next to each other above the door, so it looks like he is looking at Emily’s owl.

The owl looks so cute. I've been sorting through all our craft materials, preparing for a long rainy season.
