Our big buddies created some beautiful art work about owls.
Here are a few pieces.
That inspired a joint project with us, their little buddies.
Ms. Smith their teacher found a handprint owl idea on Pinterest and
we planned our time together around it.
We started with watching a few of our big buddies act out the story Owl Babies by Martin Waddell.
Then we painted each others hand to create our art.
The children, both young and old, practiced taking turns,
leading and following each other,
supporting through actions
Even though we have a brief 20 – 25 minutes together, it is full of conversation,
laughter and getting to know each other better.
Now we have a beautiful owl art gallery in the school hallway.
