The Original Squirrel Craft Kit! Who knew? I love these! They are so much fun and so easy to use. Not only are these so much fun they help inspire your thinkers. Working through each Squirrel Craft Kit helps teach fundamental concepts of engineering.
They also offer science highlights – science is a beautiful thing and it is everywhere in your daily life. The “extras boxes” at the bottom of each set of instructions encourages explorations and helps to open up young minds to STEM concepts. These concepts include: leverage, why round wheels roll better, center-of-gravity and stability. These simple concepts stick in your child’s mind when you can show them how they actually work.
Project: Green Thumb – you can build a garden set with stickers! No glue involved, just fun with stickers and imagination.
Project: Speed Racer – build your very own racing cart with stickers! Stem Bonus: you learn why round wheels roll better!
Project: Sun Lounge – Build a sun lounge for Squirrel – Stem Bonus: you learn the physics of center-of-gravity and stability.
The Squirrel King also offers Squirrels with Acorns – You can choose from four different kits – Sunshine Pack ( this pack lets you craft pink, orange and yellow squirrels ) 100% recycled paper acorn, instruction cards turn into a fast paced match game and plantable paper envelope contains googly eyes and paper ears, arms and legs – DON’T throw away! Plant and water it and watch for wildflowers! Forest Pack – ( this pack lets you craft purple, blue and green squirrels ) along with the paper acorn, card deck and plantable envelope.

Orchard Kit – ( this kit provides everything you need to put your squirrels to WORK ) Craft two trees with foliage and apples, ladder for the squirrels and a box to collect all the apples they collect. OH YEAH! The instructions turn into a GIANT CATERPILLAR!
