During the colder months, you may be able to spot a basketball-sized bundle of leaves and sticks among the upper branches of trees. These are dreys, or squirrel nests, which keep squirrels safe and warm in the harsh weather. Can you build one as well as a squirrel? Use sticks, leaves, moss, and other organic materials to construct a tabletop squirrel treehouse.
