Here's a cute and quick little project that you can set out for the kids to do when things get a little hectic. Visit Krokotak to download, print, and fold these paper owls that can be colored or left plain. They'd be a great Halloween decoration or mobile too.
Fem Manuals shares these adorable squirrels made using papier mache over a paper cup armature. Add cardboard arms and legs, a pompom nose, and a fluffy feather for the tail and you have just about the cutest squirrels I've ever seen!
