This is a project that I used to do every year. I found my sample and decided to do them this year. I was so happy I made that decision, they came out beautiful. I did them with fourth grade. We made the tissue paper collage background one week, and then added the tree with oil pastels the next. We were able to review our shading to make things look three dimensional.

Quick Clay Owls
This could be done with K 1 or 2 after reading Owl Moon or a similar owl book.
This is from the blog 4 Crazy Kings:
Start with a ball (any clay will work)
Smoosh to make circle
Use marker cap to make UUUUUU's on belly
Fold sides in
Fold top down - pinch ears a bit
Use marker cap to make eyes
Use butter knife or similar to make beak -
Finally you can play with a bit by smooshing sides a bit to make owl more round.
Fire and glaze. (You could also use oil pastels/crayon and ink instead of glaze.(See OZ KIDZ ARTZ)
