Christianne at Little Page Turners just did a cute owl craft inspired by Valerie at Frugal Family Fun Blog. They gave me the idea for our squirrel craft this week.
Giant chenille stem
I mixed some white and black paint to make gray and had the kids paint the entire tp roll. Serious business you know.
Unfortunately, the craft store only had black chenille stems, I was hoping for gray or brown. The tails are stapled to the back. Sassyfras insisted that she wanted me to draw a mouth on her squirrel...I think it's fairly obvious that I'm not an artist, but she was very happy anyway.
