Ideas for Squirrel Crafts and Activities
Want to try out this template but not sure what to do with it? Why not try one of these suggestions, we often find that once we get started a quick look at our craft supplies inspires us with even more ideas!
Colouring: I always mention this but honestly this would make a great squirrel colouring page too. Just grab your colouring pencils, crayons or paints and make that creature look super cute.
Paint Resist: I’ve used this template to make our paint resist squirrel craft. If you haven’t tried this technique before it’s a good one to try and we’ve got a step by step tutorial to help you.
Pom pom painting: With squirrels being furry creatures pom pom painting is a good idea as it gives a bit of a texture to it.
Scrunched tissue paper: Again this would be a good one to use a bit of texture. Cover your squirrel in glue and then scrunch small piece of tissue paper into balls before sticking it onto your template.
