We’ve been collecting a lot of autumn leaves and fruit so it would have been a pity to let them go waste. I found a really nice squirrel template online so the idea came: we should decorate the squirrel’s tail with these dry autumn goodies.
What you need:
- bushy-tailed squirrel template
- shredded leaves (other flat autumn fruit like Norway maple fruit)
- brown crayon or coloured pencil
- 1 googly eye
- a black or brown pom-pom
How to make it:
The dry leaves we shredded and the Norway maple’s paired samara fruit was used as it was found. You can prepare it before hand but you can do it with your little one.
- I prepared a squirrel as an example
- E. coloured the body of the squirrel
- She glued on the googly eye and the pom-pom nose
- She glued on the samara fruit first
- She glued the rest of the tail and sprinkled the dry leaf flakes on the glue
- She swept off the excess
Artwork is done 🙂
