Night Time - Family Storytime

This is for an all ages, whole family storytime:

There's a wide eyed owl
(thumbs and forefingers around eyes)
With a pointed nose,
(forefinger makes a V at end of nose)
Two pointed ears,
(forefingers extended up from head for ears)
And claws for toes.
(fingers and arms bent in front of chest)
When he sits up high in the tree,
(point up to top of tree)
And he looks at you,
(point at a child in the group)
He flaps his wings,
(fold arms into arm pits and flap)
And he says, "Whoo, Whoo."

  • Flannelboard - Five Little Bats on a Dark Night (counting down rhyme I found on the website Estherstorytimes)
  • Book #3 - The Napping House by Audrey Wood, illustrated by Don Wood (Alternative book: Hush!: A Thai Lullaby by Minfong Ho, pictures by Holly Meade
  • Activity - Ten Little Kittens Good Night (fingerplay, not sure where I picked up this one)
  • Closing - Shake My Sillies Out (action song from More Singable Songs by Raffi)
  • Family Small Motor Activity - Create a paper plate shooting star: (1) Spiral cut a paper plate. (2) Cut out a star. (3) Invite children to glue the star to the paper plate and decorate with color pens.
