It’s still REALLY hot here in Georgia, so it’s a little hard to get into the fall mode yet, but we’re trying. I have been saving up some toilet paper rolls for a while and thought it would be fun if Juliet and I made some owls together one afternoon.
It turned out to be really fun! She loved gluing the feathers on the tube and picking out the eyes and beak. The best part is that she was able to do the entire project on her own–except for cutting out the beak. I did mine–she did hers–and we had fun.
Once they dried, I hot-glued some string to the inside and hung them from the chandelier as our festive fall kitchen decor.
Here’s a few more close-ups of the cute little guys…
I like a very fluffy and feathery owl.
Juliet prefers a thinner, less feathersome fowl. She enjoyed this activity so much that she asked to make another one the next day (this rarely happens!), so she made a blue-feathered friend to join the owls.
We spent some time at Borders the other night and I found some beautiful fall books for baby that I might have to get Lucia for next year.
Here’s a little owl–I love this series of books, but don’t own any of them yet. The illustrations are very engaging and the little owl moves from page to page through the cut-outs.
This has beautiful images and I especially love the squirrel page that features a very soft and touchable squirrel tail!
Do you have any favorite fall books for babies or preschoolers to share?
