Midnight Owls - (2nd)

The students enjoyed creating this nighttime picture with origami owls. The color scheme was limited to gray, tan, brown, white and peach. We textured one side of a 6 x 6 paper for the adult owl (paper colors: light gray, slate gray, tan, brown) and a 4 x 4 paper for the baby owl using "naked crayons" (crayons without papers).

We added large yellow eyes and black pupils using the "Magic Fold" technique. Magic Fold is a great term for drawing one shape on a folded piece of paper, then cutting it out and getting two identical shapes.

Instead of drawing the stars for the children's project, we applied silver adhesive stars. Some children also added a nest, eggs, apples, and more leaves and branches.
