Nocturnal Friends

Eva may not be nocturnal but some of her favorite animals are.  This week we will focus on two of the spookier nighttime friends- bats and owls.

Bat Mobile- we'll be making a hanging bat decoration (not Batman's vehicle)

Hand and Footprint Bat- once again Eva's prints will be transformed into a critter of the night

Cut Paper Owl- Eva will get to practice her cutting, making feathers for an owl

Fall Animal Patterns- we got a cute pattern game from our recent Scholastic book order that has owls and bats

Bats on the Moon- Eva will need to count to see how many bats are flying across the moon

Owl Snack- check out how we transform a few of our favorite snack foods into an owl

  1. So glad I've found your site. Love all the books you connect with your ideas. Thanks for sharing. I'll be adding your site to my blogroll at,so my childcare parents can also make the connection.

  2. We are doing nocturnal animals right now too. Love your ideas!

  3. Great ideas. We have some owl books out from the library right now too. My daughter loves to imitate their sounds.
    Have a great week!
