Oh my goodness – I have a daughter who is obsessed with owls. Do you have a child who loves something? Is it cars, is it dogs or dinosaurs? When you discover that your child has a passion for a particular subject or a particular thing, this is the perfect teachable opportunity.for your convenience, this post contains affiliate links
A love of owls has lead our entire family to local conservation areas to meet bird of prey education sessions. We have borrowed countless books about owls from the library. There was an owl birthday party, complete with an owl cake, owl crafting and owl loot bags. Every new owl exploration has involved reading, writing, creating. Following a child’s passion will always lead to learning.
So, when I was thinking about contributing to the 31 Days of ABC’s series this year, I knew we had to select the letter “o” and we had to create a fun owl activity. Inspired by all the owl books my daughter has read, we wanted to make an owl themed bookmark. We designed a blank printable owl bookmark. Print off the bookmark and let your kids get creative. Depending on the age of your child, this bookmark will look very different. A preschooler, an early reader and a grade schooler will use their imaginations differently.

markers, pencil crayons, scissors
Print off the blank owl bookmark template. We used heavy card stock paper so that our bookmark will be more durable.
Next, it’s time to start designing the owl bookmark. We chose to use the quotation “Owl you need is a good book”. Feel free to add have your child add her own words to the bookmark. “Reading is a hoot” “Owl hold your spot for you”.
