Songs
This Little Owl
This little owl slept all day
This little owl flew away
This little owl made not a sound
This little owl is nice and round
This little owl could only say,"Whooo whooo whooo, have a nice day!"
Owl Owl
Owl, owl, turn your head.
Owl, owl, blink your eyes.
Owl, owl, flap your wings.
Owl, owl, flex your claws.
Owl, owl, hoot your hoot.
Little Owl
Tune: This Old Man

Little Owl, in the tree
He is flying down to me
With a flap, flap, flap, flap
All through the night
Little Owl is quite a site.

Little Owl, in the tree,
He is hooting down at me,
With a hoot, hoot, hoot, hoot,
All through the night,
Little Owl is quite a site.
Owls Call
Tune: Brother John

Late at night, Late at Night
Who, Whoo, Whoooo
I can hear the owls call
Way up in the trees so tall
Who, Whoo, Whoooo
Craft

Use a coloring sheet of an owl body and have the children color and cut it out. Tape it to a craft stick. Then trace and cut out the child's handprints and tape or staple them onto the owl body as wings. The wings can be colored or add feathers.
