Squirrel with a Cup of Nuts Craft and Learning Activity

Squirrel CraftChildren color and cut out the squirrel pattern and glue it to a paper or plastic cup. They can then go on a Scavenger hunt to look for things a squirrel might eat and place them in the cup.

This craft can also be used to review math concepts. Children can count how many of each object they have found. The can make a graph to graph the number of each object they have found.

You can also review math facts. Place a certain amount of acorns in the cup. For example, tell your child that the squirrel has ten acorns in his cup. He is going to give you four acorns. (Take 4 acorns out of the cup and give them to your child.) Ask your child, "How many acorns does the squirrel have left?" Keep playing this game changing the amount of acorns the squirrel gives your child until your child can do it without having to count. You can also give your child all the acorns to start and have him give the squirrel a certain amount of acorns. Young children will enjoy this activity even better if you pretend you are the squirrel and talk for him.

1. Have your children write their spelling words on the acorns and glue them to the color sheet around the squirrel. 2. Cut out around the squirrel's arms. If a child spells or says a word correctly three times in a row, he can place the acorn with that word in the squirrel's arms. Tell him to keep practicing until he can get all the acorns in the squirrel's arms on the first try. You can write "I know how to spell all my words" at the bottom of the color sheet.

2. Write out all the vocabulary words on a set of acorns. Place them in the squirrels arms. Make a matching set for your child. Turn over all the acorns. Ask your child to find the acorn that matches the top acorn in the squirrel's arm. Keep playing until your child has matched all the acorns.

3. Cut out all the acorn have your child think of words relating to the fall season and write them on the acorns.

4. Write your child's vocabulary words on the acorns. Scatter them around the room. Ask your child to help the squirrel find his acorns.

Keep playing until he can remember all his words.
