With the summer nearing, our yard has become a playground for many furry backyard creatures. The bunnies are hopping, the chipmunks are scurrying & the squirrels are gathering nuts. Squirrels were one of the first things that I learned to draw. My grandfather taught me when I was a little girl & it has always been one of my favorite creatures because of its cute bushy tail.
My daughter has been loving making footprint crafts lately & asks for them often. We made one tonight & of course it was a squirrel. Footprint & hand print crafts are my favorite to make because they are not only adorable, but also because they make great keepsakes.
Paint your child’s cute little foot in a shade of either brown or gray.
Paint in the tail, ears & arms.
Use chalk & marker to add details & highlights to complete our sweet little friend.
