Learn numbers, letters, colors, science, and more with these fun, free owl themed learning activities for kids. Pair with Martin Waddell’s Owl Babies.
Martin Waddell’s picture book, Owl Babies, is one of our all-time family favorites. This timeless tale of three baby owls anxiously waiting for their mother to come home reminds me of how my own young children feel when I am gone. I was thrilled to hear it had been chosen as this week’s virtual book club pick. This book is very popular and should be in most libraries, but In My Tree is an adorable alternative book pick for this week’s theme. My kids helped me put together a fun printable to practice colors, and we are excited to try all the fun owl themed learning activities my co-hosts have come up with.
I created this very simple color matching printable activity. Just click on the image above to download the PDF. Your child can draw lines to match the owls with their nests. If you want the activity to last a bit longer, you can paint – with matching paint colors. My four-year-old love this watercolor set. You could also glue on pieces of colored yarn.
