Are these the cutest owls! The second grade learns about different textures, so why not tear feathers! Although, I must say some of the children used scissors to cut their feathers after a long try with tearing.
These owls were actually made on black 12x18" construction paper and I had no intention of cutting them out until one student mentioned how cool they would look if we did cut them out...so after each owl was dry, I cut them out. They are so much more cooler cut out and hanging out on my homemade tree than just hanging out on a black piece of paper!
Kids are so smart, aren't they!
