Songs & Fingerplays

The Squirrel - fingerplay

Whisky, Frisky
Up he goes
To the top
Whirly, Twirly,
Round and round
Down he scampers
To the ground
Furly, Curly,
Tall as a feather
Broad as a sail
Where's his supper
In a shell
Snappity, Crackity,
Out it fell.



Arts & Crafts

Cut out an outline of a squirrel, and lie it flat in the bottom of a box (or any container with sides). Place a spot of paint on the squirrel and then add several acorns. Roll the acorns through the paint to make painted designs on your squirrels.

Nut Painting

collect different kinds of nuts for children to investigate. Place a squirrel shaped contruction paper in a flat box. Put nuts into a small container with paint. Have children scoop out nuts and place on squirrel. Tip the box to have the nuts roll back and forth (similiar to marble painting).
