I thought I would share another quick and easy activity I made using this awesome kit! I love repurposing trash! I now collect frozen juice lids, among other things. I used these frozen juice lids to make a little owl matching game for Little Man.

Happy Thursday, friends!!
I had several questions about the owl counting cards that I used during O is for Owls Week. I have to admit that I am a bit of a sucker for digital designer Crystal Wilkerson. Anticipating owl week, I bought her adorable owl rub-ons and stickers using a bit of fun money. I used them for TONS of projects and have plans for even more, so I think I am definitely getting my money's worth! You can buy your own set here.
This is definitely an advanced game because the owls vary by colors and pattern. I also used the same kind of background paper for each matching set so that would help identify a match. We used this a bit last week, but he will grow into it even more as he gets older.
I just printed off a bunch of these adorable owls. I used my 2" hole punch to cut them out, and mounted them on scrapbook paper circles. But not before distressing every edge I could get my hands on!
Then, I used mod podge to glue the owls on to my frozen juice lids. I also added a layer of mod podge over the top to protect those cute lil' owls!
Is this little guy cute or what?!
I just made 6 matching pairs, so there are 12 owls total. I didn't want to overwhelm poor Little Man!
Now we're all set to play memory!
One last thought.... don't forget to bust out your Halloween advent calendars. Tomorrow is the first day of October! Bring on the Halloween fun!
