Squirrels are an interesting and accessible animal that children enjoy talking about and learning about. Give them the chance to act like a squirrel by printing this squirrel tail template and letting them color it. Once it’s colored, punch a hole in the top, string some yarn through the hole and then tie it around their waist for a fun and squirrely time.
*Teacher Tip: this is a great way to get children engaged in imaginative play. Read them a few stories about squirrels and their behaviors and then put these tails on them to see what they do! It’s a fun way to informatively assess their retention!
