Ter-wit Ter-woo

Inspired by Mina’s love of owls, we have been drawing and making owls. First up these drawings (with a little bit of help from Art Projects for Kids). Waif drew a very wise owl:


I drew a cute owl:


And Gman went for something a bit more psychadelic:


The boys have also had a go at making clay owls. They fashioned these last Friday and then, making the most of the first sunny day in weeks, yesterday took them outside to paint:

Here they are, all painted. First up, Gman’s:

G owl

Then Waif’s:

R owl

Even the ladybirds came over to check them out:

ladybird between owls

It was lovely to have some sunshine and be back outside. Waif in particular was happy about it:

Alas, today it is raining again!! Perhaps some owl poetry..?

    Thanks Clare! You gotta love owls haven’t you? (unless you’re a mouse I guess ;-))

  3. Lovin’ the owl-art. What a fantastic way to spend an afternoon on a glorious spring day.
