Storytime: Owls

Owl in the Tree (Tune: Skip to My Lou)
Owl in the tree says, who, who, who
Owl in the tree says, who, who, who
Owl in the tree says, who, who, who
Who, who are you?

There have been a lot of new faces at storytime, this was a great way to introduce the owl theme and find out some of the new names!

Wide-Eyed Owl
There’s a wide-eyed owl (circle your eyes with your hands)
With a pointed nose (touch nose)
Two pointed ears (make ears with hands)
And claws for toes (wiggle fingers)
He lives way up in the tree (point up)
And when eh looks at you (point to children)
He flaps his wings (flap arms)
And says, whooo, whoo (cup hands around mouth)

Flap Your Wings (Tune: London Bridge)
Flap you wings and fly around, fly around, fly around
Flap your wings and fly around, just like an owl

Open your eyes big and wide, big and wide, big and wide
Open your eyes big and wide, just like an owl

Land on the ground and hop along, hop along, hop along
Land on the ground and hop along, just like an owl

Turn your head and say who, who, who, who, who, who
Turn your head and say who, who, who, just like an owl

Five Little Owls
Remember – if you’re ever crunched for time you can always print out images, laminate them and put velcro on the back!

5 little owls on a dark, dark night
5 little owls are quite a sight.
5 little owls, are you keeping score?
1 flies away and that leaves 4

4 little owls as happy as can be
1 flew away and that leaves 3

3 little owls calling who who who
1 flies away and that leaves 2

2 little owls having lots of fun
1 flew away and that leaves 1

1 little owl and we’re almost done
He flies away and that leaves none
