These Dixie cup squirrels are an easy and adorable fall craft.
My daughter ever so randomly and matter-of-factly said to me the other day, “Mama, let’s make a squirrel craft.” It was so out of the blue. I had to ask why. Her simple answer was “Because they are so cute”. That was good enough for me and let’s be honest, they are pretty cute. These Dixie cup squirrels are perfect for the fall and were easy to make.
Make your own easy pop-up puppet with readily available materials.
Do you remember those old cone pop-up puppets? I used to love them as a child and just knew that my daughter would love them too. Puppets are wonderful for the imagination and for pretend play. These pop-up puppets are fun, interactive, easy to make and you should have most of the materials readily available.

My daughter often comes up with the ideas for our projects together. Sometimes her inspiration comes from seeing something in a book or something from school or sometimes like with today’s craft, it just comes out of nowhere. We were playing restaurant together when she stopped & very confidently said, “Mama, I want to make a windmill with the spinny thing.” Ok, that sounded like fun.
