@Kristi Berry Hedwig the Owl is a little stuffed owl I found at Kirkland's. I want to use him like the "Elf on a Shelf" and move him daily. I would sit him somewhere around the room where my kiddos can see him. If their desks are neat and clean they get a "Desk Owl" reward and treat of some kind. I took a picture of Hedwig and erased the background to insert him into the desk reward cards. You can also use the reward cards for upper grades just minus the moving owl.
