For our Saturday Storytime, young patrons listened to several stories about owls, and we looked at photos of snowy owls and discussed some facts. Then we made our own snowy owl ornament from a pine cone. We deconstructed cotton balls, then pushed the stringy cotton in between the bracts of the pine cone. When we were finished, it looked like a snowy owl's puffy body! We added some white feathers for wings, a pipe cleaner beak, and googly eyes to mimic an owl's eyes. String for the top, then home to be added to the Christmas tree! Whoo-whoo!
