You know how things happen in 3's?
Well this week --
1. we dropped our oldest off at college so now both kids are back in school,
2. found trees with their leaves changing
3. the temperature last night dropped to 56 degrees!
Can you say ‘Fall is on the way’?!!
There’s something about the start of a new season that gets my creative juices flowing. I’ve pulled out our Fun Things to Do in the Fall (print a free copy for your home too!) and started making plans for the things we look forward to doing in Autumn.
Family hikes and brunch with apple cider pancakes are right at the top of the list :)
With all these wonderful seasonal changes, I am definitely in the mood to get started on some Autumn themed crafts & activities too!
Today's theme -- everything Owl!
Owl Crafts for Kids to Make
This week I thought I would share a round-up of outstanding Owl crafts & activities since they are also big fans of the cooler temps and fall-like weather.
And I think they are just so darn cute too!
Owl Crafts using Nature Items
Some of my favorite Fall crafting adventures are those that include natural items -- pinecones, leaves, acorns, sticks, etc. Getting the kids outside to gather materials and burn off some energy is always a plus before sitting down for a craft session.
Bark Owl craft | Fireflies & Mudpies
Owl in a Tree frame | Inspired by Familia
Stone & Shell Owls | Rhythms of Play
Pinecone Owls | Mum in the Madhouse
Pumpkin Owl | Fun Crafts Kids
Walnut Owls | Red Ted Art
Acorn Tops Owl | Crafty Crow
Leaf Owl | Six Cherries on Top
Owl Book & Craft Pairings
We also love using books as a kick-off to our craft projects so I wanted to pair up some beautiful owl crafts with classic owl stories.
I suggest reading the book first and then discussing the story as you make your craft -- this really helps to enhance communication skills and reading comprehension with kids! I've included affiliate links for each of the books so you can learn more about our selections.
