We read Wow! Said the Owl, by Tim Hopgood and made our own little owls.
I happened to have found a package of black pom-poms in a clearance bin at my local craft store several months ago. I really didn't know what I'd use them for. Hoo'd a thought they'd turn out like this? ha!
I know. I know. You think I'm a hoot.
Anyways, if you want to make some, you can find pom poms in any craft store. (These are about 2" or so.)
I cut out the yellow eye circles, beak and feet using felt and we glued them on.
Then we glued the googly eyes on.
And I tried to give them owl ears by pinching the pom poms a bit.
