For my Co-op literature class, we read Owl Moon (a favorite!)by Jane Yolen
I found this adorable idea for pinecone owls! Finally, I was able to use my "super special" pinecones that have made 3 moves with us, for a super special craft! I may have some "hording issues" - but, it turned out well in this instance :-)
Pinecone - stuff with cotton balls, add googly eyes and pipecleaner wings and beak. Done! Barely any cleanup too!
