Earl the Squirrel – Yarn Acorn

Yarn AcornEarl The Squirrel


We read Earl the Squirrel by Don Freeman. The girls loved the story and the simple black white and red colors. It was a delightful story. We made yarn acorns.

What you need: acorn cutout, glue and yarn light and dark brown.

We compared the top and bottom of the acorn and the light and dark yarn.

They put the dark colored brown yarn on top. Part of the way through Mary decided she did not want to do this today.
