Junkyard Tales Audio Advent Calendar Printable Coloring Page: Day 17 – Squirrel Circus

The Junkyard Tales Audio Advent Calendar Day 17. The second big storm comes to the Junkyard and this time, it brings with it some unexpected guests: The Squirrel Circus! This thrills the Junkyard animals — that is, everyone except the steadfast watchdog who worries that the loud and enthusiastic squirrels will bring too much attention.

The squirrel circus members can jump, twirl, flip, dance, and sing. Can you draw some of the circus members doing tricks? What would it look like if ALL the Junkyard animals were in the circus?

About Junkyard Tales Audio Advent Calendar

This Christmas the Junkyard Warden has a challenge he doesn't know how to face - something that could change the Junkyard for good. Sergeant, the steadfast Junkyard watchdog alerts the other animals, and they immediately take it up. “We take care of each other,” they say, “Even though the Warden doesn’t know about us - he still needs our help.” All 25 stories in this Audio Calendar are about how a community faces a difficult situation. By including everyone with their strengths and quirks, they not only solve what faces them, but they get closer in the process. These stories are funny and delightful, and they demonstrate courage, authenticity, compassion, empathy and most of all - service.
