Supply List

  1. Apply a base coat of white paint to the cup. Leave it to dry and then paint the cup orange. If you
    would like your squirrel to have a white face, leave a small section of the cup unpainted
  2. Cut a piece of brown construction paper for the tail. The size is up to you! We cut one that was
    approximately the same width as our cup
  3. Roll the construction paper vertically all the way down. Afterwards, you can let it unfurl! Leave this
    piece to the side for now
  4. From your original (uncurled) sheet of brown construction paper, cut 2 triangles for the ears
  5. Cut 2 smaller triangles with the piece of white paper (these triangles should be smaller than the
    brown triangles, as they will fit inside!)
  6. Use the glue stick to glue the white triangles to the brown triangles
  7. Once the paint has dried, you can begin to assemble your squirrel! Use a glue stick to attach the ears
    and googly eyes to the cup
  8. Use the glue gun to stick the pom pom on the cup. This will represent the nose of the squirrel. You
    can also cut a nose out of construction paper, or draw one on with a sharpie!
  9. Use the sharpie to draw a mouth. Is your squirrel happy? Surprised? Excited?
  10. Cut a pair of feet with brown construction paper and use the sharpie to draw the claws of the squirrel
  11. Use the glue stick to attach the feet to the bottom of the cup
  12. Tape the tail on the back of the squirrel using the scotch tape and your squirrel is ready!
