Owl Buddies

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,
oct 24 018 being gentle,
oct 24 019 oct 24 034
leading and following each other,
oct 24 025 supporting through actions
oct 24 027 and words.

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.

    1. Thanks Sandi, I'm hoping I'll be close by when the big buddies walk by to hear any of their conversations.
