Owl Babies by Martin Waddell and Patrick Benson is a timeless classic!

What’s more, this wonderfully illustrated story can be a great teaching tool in many ways. We’ve created some simple 1, 2, 3 printable worksheets to accompany the book.

Owl Babies is most famous as a reminder to our children that we will always come back.

Mummy owl leaves the hole in the tree to go and collect food (we assume), and the 3 owl babies are left wondering if she will come back. Little Bill is especially anxious and just wants his mummy.

You can download the Owl Babies counting activity sheets here – no email required.

What Are The Owl Baby Worksheets Like?

There is one sheet with owls that is to be laminated and cut out. We have not used the Illustrators drawings, but images of random owls.

They have the same names as in the book and are in the same order of size/age, Sarah 1, Percy 2, and Bill 3. And then there is Mummy Owl of course!

The other 3 sheets can be laminated, and the owls can then be positioned correctly on these.

There is one with a nest (though not a hole in a tree, sorry!) with twigs, feathers, and leaves as in the book.

There is another sheet where the owls can be positioned in the tree. “A big branch for Sarah, a small branch for Percy, and an old bit of ivy for Bill.”

And the final sheet is does not relate to the book at all, but again the child can match the number and name to a set of wings. We thought it would be nice for the owl babies to take flight!

If you want to help your toddler learn to recognize and count 1, 2, 3, these activities will surely do the job.

If they are familiar with the Owl Babies book then they will love being able to place their owl friends in the right place.

Our daughter is 2 going on 3 here, and seems to be the perfect age for these sheets.

She can count up to about 20 now, but she does not recognize the numbers so well, so this has helped her. She knows the names of all the owls and the Owl Babies story well, so she’s happy to do it over and over again.

Hopefully your little ones enjoy it just as much!

  1. Love this set! My kids are a bit old for it but would have loved it when they were younger. We were huge fans of Owl Babies!
