Nuts to You – Gray Squirrel

Gray SquirrelNuts to You


We read Nuts to You! by Lois Ehlert. Mary loved the great story about the squirrel and the girl. We had fun exploring the many different pictures in the book.

What you need: squirrel cut out, tray, q-tip, white paint, black paint, paint brush, and paint holder.

Mary mixed the black and white paint today. We watched as the color changed.

    For some reason, gray always seems to be a hard color to master. I bet she won’t forget it now, though! What a great activity. We also featured Nuts to You. Love that book.

  4. My kids LOVE to color mix and are a tad bit infatuated with squirrels!

  5. We haven’t read this one yet. Cute squirrels.

  6. Ohh this looks brilliant that is a book we have to read – thank you for linking to Tuesday Tots this week and just to let you know that I will be featuring it this week on Rainy Day Mum
