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.
Put in a frame for an adorable keepsake for you or to give as a gift.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
My girls also love looking at the squirrels as they are zooming by in the trees and such. So, I could see them loving this craft, too 🙂
They are everywhere. Lol! Mai loves footprint crafts. It is cute. She paints my feet sometimes too and then draws on mine. I should write about that. Lol
