Squirrel Art


The Very Hungry Squirrel: Color the inside outer rim of a small paper plate brown.. add eyes and ears to make a squirrels face. Do not color middle circle of plate. Then, cut out the middle of plate. Turn plate over and apply contacting so that the “sticky” side is on the inside (squirrels face side) of plate. When you turn the plate over, you will have a squirrels face with his mouth open wide and you can have the kids stick on nuts and/or nut shells or if there are any allergies, you can cut out nut shapes or scrunch up brown tissue paper.


Get a printout or draw a picture of a squirrel with a big tail. Color or paint him. You can either paint cotton balls (grey or brown) or buy the colored pom poms from a craft store. Glue them onto the tail!
