Guess Whooo?

by becky on July 18, 2012

Holy hotness, Batman! I am telling you, this heat is HORRIBLE!!! Can someone tell Lillie? For a dog who HATES hot weather, she sure doesn’t want to skip her morning walks. You may say, just don’t take her. Well, if any of you have ever owned a stubborn darling dalmatian, you know that if you change their routine, your furniture takes a beating (or rather digging). Seriously, take a trip to You Tube and type in crazy dalmatian. You’ll see what they are capable of. Not to go on a dalmatian rant, but 94.6% of  the time Lillie is a good, sweet girl. But, when she doesn’t get enough exercise and/or she’s bored, she goes NUTS on my walls and furniture. Hence, the walking in the 99 + degree weather. So anyway, now we are both chilling out (literally) in the basement. Me on the couch, Lillie “the nut job” on the tile. All is well.

Onto my post. I have been creeping my Pinterest page and I’ve noticed that soooo many people are pinning my Back to School “Guess Who?” Idea. How cool!

original post

Well, inspiration hit a few weeks ago and I thought that this would be a great time to incorporate a cute owl craftivity. I have seen so many cute owl graphics and themes but wasn’t sure when/how to use them in my classroom. Until, duh, Guess Whooo. So, I put together a super cute craftitivity that correlates with my original Guess Who idea. I plan to still have the class write or type up their “clues” and then create a super fun owl. I have already bought “back to school” scrapbook paper that go so well with the activity. Here is an example of my finished project.

 I had WAYY to much fun making the owls. I printed the templates (included) onto several sheets of scrapbook paper (onto the back of the paper), cut, and mixed and matched. Then, I wrote up my “clues”, cut and glued the frame template (included), and glued my picture onto the inside frame, added my name plate, and glued it to the inside of my 9 x 18 construction paper. I’m really excited to do this with my class this year. If you want to do the same with your class, visit my TpT store and check it out!

For $2.00, you will receive:

•Directions for how to complete the project.
•Templates for Owl Craftivity
•“Clues” Stationary
•Blank “Clues” Stationary
•Picture Frame Stationary
•Nameplates for pictures
•Examples of finished projects
Well, Lillie has moved from the floor to the couch. I guess that means we can go upstairs. Have a great day everyone and stay “cool”!

Such a cute idea, Becky! I usually hate putting up bulletin boards, but you’ve inspired me. I can’t get into my room for three more weeks, but I plan to check back here for motivation. Thanks!
