Children will:

Use and develop fine motor skills while create an art project.



  • Squirrel pattern

  • Brown craft or construction paper

  • Small black pompom
  • Wiggly eye
  • White glue

  • Paintbrushes

  • Coffee grounds



Print squirrel pattern, cut out, and trace onto brown craft or construction paper. Cut out. Have children “paint” the squirrel with a mixture of watered down glue. Let children sprinkle their squirrel with coffee grounds (tea leaves work too) while glue is still wet. When children are done, they will have a furry, brown squirrel.

In the fall, squirrels are busy gathering and hiding nuts for the winter. Have children pretend to be squirrels gathering and hiding nuts while you sing a fun song about a little squirrel.
