Upcycled Owls

This month at school we've been focusing on taking care of our environment and going green. So for the past couple weeks my students have been bringing in paper rolls from home. They've been accumulating by the dozen in our art center. This week we turned a few of them into these adorable little owlets...

Aren't they the cutest?

Here's how we made them:
1. Paint an empty toilet paper roll (or paper towel roll cut in half)
2. Fold in the top ends of the paper roll to create the ears
3. Use scraps of patterned paper to make the wings and "belly" as we called it
4. Glue on googly eyes and a small orange triangle for the beak

My class loved this project and are all about recycling, upcycling, and helping their Earth stay beautiful!

Also, happy FRIDAY! This weekend will be pretty relaxed for me. Trevor is busy in the editing process of his documentary so we'll be just hanging around. Maybe I'll get to sit out in the sun and read tomorrow. Today after school I actually put on a SUN DRESS and FLIP FLOPS, made myself a margarita, and sat out on the patio with a funny book. I'm loving the warm Spring/Summer weather we're getting lately in New England!

Have a fantastic weekend!
