Toilet Paper Roll Squirrel Craft

One of our favorite Fall animals is the squirrel so my kids and I got busy and made a lovely Toilet paper roll squirrel this week!

Love them or hate them squirrels can be found anywhere near a forest or where there are lots of trees. They mainly spend their time alone unless they are mating.

My two kids enjoy watching them hop from tree when we go on a forest walk. As we can never get close enough to catch one we decided to make an easy squirrel craft. Previously we made an adorable paper Squirrel wreath.

All you need is an empty toilet paper roll, some colored craft papers and a marker. Kindergarten kids should be able to do this easy animal craft for Fall!

Why not make this adorable squirrel craft for National Squirrel Appreciation Day which falls on the 21st January! Will you treat the squirrels in your local forest to some nuts on this day?
