Talk to the children about owls and their keen eyesight.
Play the traditional game of “I Spy.”
Have the children use their owl eyes to spot different items in the room.
Have the children sit in a large circle. Ask one child to be the owl and leave the room. While the owl is out, designate a leader to begin a motion (for example: tapping toes, blinking, turning heads).
All the children in the circle need to follow the leader. Bring the owl back into the room and have them watch with their owl eyes and guess who is being the leader.
