I’m always looking for a few things that are quick, easy & fun for my students to do, during that last day before our Thanksgiving break.
With that in mind, I designed this simple and versatile owl craft, which is a nice “wind things down” activity, for that sometimes hectic time.
There are 2 pattern options.
One says, “Guess whooo’s wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving?”, while the other one is generic, for students who may not celebrate this holiday: “Guess whooo is wishing you an awesome autumn?”
Be sure and check the PREVIEW for samples.
Children color & cut out their owl, along with the extra hat.
When that top tab on the hat is folded and glued in place, the hat will flip up to reveal a child’s school photo and the answer to the above question: “Me! That’s whooo.”
You don’t have to, but for some pizzazz & 3D pop, add wiggle eyes attached with glue dots. For that “finishing touch”, an extra beak and pair of wings (which also flip up), adds even more dimension.
If you do add the wings, students can write their greeting underneath.
If you decide to skip this step, I’ve provided a hexagon-shaped writing prompt, which is glued on the back.
There’s a blank hexagon, so you can have children complete a writing prompt, as well as a “Happy Thanksgiving” or “Happy fall”, where little ones trace the greeting, then sign their name.
I chose a hexagon shape because that’s one of our “toughies” to remember, so this provides a teachable moment to review it.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a relaxing and stress-free Thanksgiving break.
