Here is a sweet song about a favorite nocturnal animal. Watch the video below to see how used my puppet, or do as a fingerplay with the motions below.

You can also have the kids make paper bag owl puppets. There are lots of great ideas on Pinterest
 

 

An Owl Sat Alone


An owl sat alone on the branch of a tree
(use arm as branch, raise thumb for owl)

And she was as quiet as quiet could be
"Twas night and her eyes were wide open like this
(circle eyes with fingers and look around)

She looked all around, not a thing did she miss
Some little birds perched on the branch of the tree
(fingers of other hand fly on tree)

And they were as quiet as quiet could be
The solemn old owl said, "Whoo-whoo-whoo"
And up jumped the birds and away they all flew
(wave hand away, fluttering fingers behind)
