>Birch bark can be used like paper. Draw or colour on birch bark with pens, pencils, pencil crayons or markers.
When finding birch bark for drawing, be sure to use birch bark that has already shed off a tree, is on a dead tree, or is almost off the tree. If you pull birch bark off a live tree, you could kill it as the bark is its skin. In the picture below, the back is naturally peeling. Simply cut along the spot where it is still attached to the tree and you will have a nice piece of bark.
Thank you for the note.
I have an acorn that we can give a chipmunk.
