Squirrels live in the tops of trees, sometimes they make a big nest of leaves and twigs called a drey or they make a den in a big hole in the trees like owls.

Did you know squirrels are vegetarian?  They eat nuts, seeds, roots, and fruit. But I think their favourite are acorns.

Pippa makes drawing easy by breaking the process down into a series of simple shapes that children are already familiar with – letters of the alphabet, circles & squares, smiles and frowns…

In this draw-a-long Pippa added tone and colour to her drawing by using a strong coffee mixture as a homemade tint. What safe and natural materials can you find in the kitchen or garden that would add something special to your work?
