Arts n’ Crafts
Jessica Eulo, a nanny in New Jersey, was kind enough to send us some project ideas to do with acorns. Jessica had the kids gather acorns and then paste them to cardboard in the shapes of the first letters of their names (see her photo to the left).
Acorns have the natural shape of a person’s head wearing a hat. This makes a really cute project. Just take some paint out and paint eyes, nose, and a mouth on the Acorn’s surface. You can also paint the cap.
To make acorn garland to decorate the children’s home gently remove the caps of the acorns from the nuts. Then drill two holes in each cap. String embroidery floss through the holes. Then attach the acorns to the caps with a hot glue gun.
