We picked back up with our Owl unit this week, reading “Our Wild World: Owls”. I say reading lightly because the text was a little thick for my 4 year old, but the photographs were quite awe inspiring.
So much so that on the spur of the moment we decided to make a mural mosaic of one of them.
We got to work punching circles…
(I am soooo glad I bought that Martha Stewart Circle Punch.)
Trust me you don’t want to be cutting all these circles out by hand.
Plus the kids love to slam down the puncher and watch the circles fly. Good Fun.
And at the end of a 20 sheets of paper, 4 glue-sticks and eating all our meals in the living room, our Owl mural was complete:
We hung him up in the living room, with a view of the kitchen “so he can catch any mice that come in for snacks”
Mice? I don’t think it’s the mice coming in and slurping down all the whip cream for breakfast honey…….
