Wide Eye Owl

First teach the children the song/ finger play.

There’s a wide eye owl (make fingers in large circles and cup over eyes)
With a pointed nose (use fingers to make a triangle & point out for nose)
2 pointed ears (use fingers for ears)
and claws for toes (wiggle fingers like toes)
he lives way up in the tree (point up to tree top)
and when he looks at you (point at kids)
he flaps his wings (use arms for wings, and flap)
and says whooo whooo (continue flapping wings)

For an art have the children make wide eye owl puppets out of paper bags and construction paper. They love it!


(Tune:Skip to my Lou) Sing at circle with owl puppet- have child say their name and then it is their turn to hold puppet and choose another child who takes a turn after saying their name…

Owl in the tree says, “Who, who, who.”
Owl in the tree says, “Who, who, who.”
Owl in the tree says, “Who, who, who.
Who, who, are you?”


Owl Song (tune: “I’m a little Teapot”)

I’m a great big owl, as you can see
I live high up in a tree. |
All the other birds wake me up when they play,
Because I like to sleep in the day!
