Montessori-inspired Squirrel Gifts Ideas and Classroom Resources for Children

Squirrels are such a fun animal to study during the fall season, especially when you incorporate acorns into activities and learning.  

They also make for a great fall classroom theme.  And we all know how much fun it is to decorate a classroom to match a special theme.

Sunshine has been obsessed with squirrels for quite some time.  It only made sense to share our favorite Montessori-inspired squirrel gift ideas and classroom resources for children.

My kiddos adored this game.  They played it over and over and over again until they grew out of it.  (So so so sad.)  I love that this game encourages the practice of fine motor skills and colors.

I honestly had no idea until they made this list that a card version of this game existed.  How fun to have with you when you're on the go, or for a kiddo who can't get enough of playing card games!

This game is perfect for everyone in the family no matter their age. I love that kids and adults can both enjoy it.

Squirrel and Acorn Cookie Cutters

Cookie cutters can be so versatile.  They can be used to bake or incorporated in play dough activities.  We've also used them for painting and stamping.

Learning Resources Alphabet Acorns Activity Set

This activity set provides endless opportunities for learning, whether using the acorns alone, or with the treasures inside.  Such a perfect resource when learning first letter sounds.

Sunshine loves her squirrel figure. She actually has two.  They are super cute and work perfectly with other figures.

Wooden Acorns Counting & Sorting Kit

For those who prefer natural materials in the classroom, this is a must have.  Just imagine all of the fun counting and sorting activities.

Artificial Acorns

If real acorns aren't available where you are, you may want to consider picking up a bag of these!  They work great for all sorts of learning activities.

Squirrel Confetti

For every season I have a collection of table scatter/confetti to use for tweezing activities, sensory bins, and table decor.  It's a staple in our home.

I just love filling our home and learning environment with seasonal treasures to enjoy.  The kiddos get so excited about them.
