1st Grade Paper Bag Owls

The first grade students spent 2 weeks working on these paper bag owls. During our first class, we painted the bodies of the owls onto the front of the bags using tempera paint. Their heads were on the open end and the feet at the base. After drying flat, the students cut wings from colored construction paper and stapled them to the front side creases of their bag. Next, we crumpled up pieces of newspaper and gently stuffed the bags until they were almost full. To finish them, we cut a small slit at the center of both open sides of the bag. We folded them at an angle to create “owl ears” and stapled them shut.
