Cut a long thick piece of brown paper and use the scissors to cut the end. Glue it to one side of the bottle.

Total Hit

My four year old loved this activity. She fed the squirrel and then dumped it out and filled it up again several times. She used the Handy Scoopers to fill little buckets which she then used to feed the squirrel.
