4. Letter S

Lastly, you can use squirrel crafts to help your toddlers learn the letter S. All you need to do is download and print my Pinterest woodland animal printable below.

Have your kids use the traceable design to not only trace their build-a-squirrel template, but you can add an uppercase S and lowercase s to the design for kids to trace the letters.

This will help your preschooler develop letter recognition in preparation for kindergarten.

5. Bible Lesson

What does the bible say about squirrels? Well, God created all the animals, especially cute ones like the squirrel and saw that it was good. Genesis 1:24.

Because God created them and ‘said they were good,’ you can use this as an opportunity to teach that all animals are precious in God’s eyes, big and small.
