Owl Finger Puppets and Rhyme

Rhymes help children learn to speak and read, so I was very excited when I saw Katie's post about owl finger puppets at Playing With Words 365!  She inspired me to make several sets of owls and start singing some rhymes!



You can make owl finger puppets a million different ways.  I used Katie's basic tutorial design and sewed most of the pieces together.  I love how each owl seems so full of personality!

Here are two of the owl rhymes I made up for us:

Five Little Owls  (to the tune of Five Little Ducks)

Five little owls went out to fly
Over the trees, up very high!
When the mother owl sang, "To-whit-to-hoo!"
One little owl went down and flew!

(Repeat for four, three, and two little owls.)

One little owl went out to fly
Over the trees, up very high!
When the mother owl sang, "To-whit-to-hoo!"
Down she went and home she flew!

(Have all the owls happy to be home together!)

Time to Eat (to the tune of Mary Had a Little Lamb)

Owl said, "It's time to eat, time to eat, time to eat!"
Owl said, "It's time to eat!
What do I eat tonight?"

Owl ate a mouse that night, mouse that night, mouse that night!
Owl ate a mouse that night
And said, "It tastes just right!"
