Activities for Little Hoot by Amy Krouse Rosenthal



It's the beginning of OWL WEEK at The Educators' Spin On It!  Do you have a Little Hoot in your life?  We read the book The Little Hoot by Amy Krouse Rosenthal for our Virtual Book Club book this month.  It's an adorable book about a little owl who wants to go to bed but his parents make him stay up a little bit longer like all owl do at night.  We had fun discovering all the little things that he does to stay awake. When you read it you have to see the owl's adorable expression on their faces that Jen Corace illustrates.   




We decided to make our own Little Hoot together.  We gathered our supplies and had a fun time together. 


Supplies Needed

  • Paint
  • Scrap or Construction Paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Precious little hands!  


Once we gathered our supplies we made several brown hand prints because we planned to make cards for family members.  {Sorry no photos we were too busy covered in brown paint, keeping baby wipes close by are a big help when making hand prints.}  I precut the Owl body shape and eyes, eyeballs, nose and feet because my 23 month old created this owl.  If you're doing this with older kids they can cut out their own shapes.  Once the paint dried, which was pretty quick after handing washing we assembled our owls.  We talked about the body parts and talked about where they go. She used the glue stick on the back to get them ready to glue.  Great for fine motor skills!  Once we were done we added the cute little text and gave them as cards to family members.  We're working on 21 Days of Contagious Gratitude at our house and this was one way to share our gratitude to our family members.  



We're going to be sharing Owl Activities all week long but thought you might want some inspiration.  Here are some of our Favorite Owl Activities that have been inspired by Little Hoot
