A Hoot and Holler For Owl Books

This week, I wanted to share a few of my favorite owl books with you.  No specific reason really other than the fact that I adore owls.  I hope that you enjoy the stories and illustrations of these delightful picture books. 

To extend your reading experience, you will find project ideas at the end of this blog. I drew the image for my blog and I thought that you might have fun making one too. The information provided describes how to draw an owl.

Open A Book to Discover A World of Creative Possibilities

 

 

 When children are given opportunities to explore, discover and create they develop skills, which can be applied to other areas of their lives; such as creativity and problem solving. So, open a book to expand the possibilities in your child’s life.

Trade Sketches with Sketch Swap

Sketch Swap is a fabulous website where you draw or sketch online, click submit, and instantly receive a realtime sketch in return.  The website approves every sketch submitted before it's sent out to others, and does not accept any drawing that wouldn't be appropriate for children, so kids and adults can both enjoy the website.

Creative Corner

I spent the Fourth of July weekend with my niece and nephew who were visiting from Colorado.  During their visit, we created several art projects together. 

Below are a few of my favorite resources for exploring art with children.  Please feel free to share any art projects or books that you have found to be useful.
