If you liked my salt dough skunks then I hope you'll like these squirrels too!
My Grade 1s and 2s created these cuties with salt dough and following the same steps as the skunks. Unfortunately I decided on trying a new recipe that did not work in our favor! The dough was heavier on the flour - I thought that would make it smoother. And as the squirrels baked the holes in the backs closed in more than I liked. We also had a few that cracked! I'll go back to my old recipe and turn down the oven for extra precaution.
We also only used half of the chenille stem as we did with the skunks. I should have followed the same procedure as before as the tails could have used a bit more fluff.
This student forgot to make ears so we made some out of brown felt. I think I like it the best!
