This Acorn Art is a super easy and fun craft for toddlers and preschoolers. Perfect for this Fall season as acorns are everywhere!
The kids and I went on our daily walk around the neighborhood and the kids spotted a big Oak tree with lots and lots of acorns. They pretended it was candy and imagined they had a little candy store where one of them was a customer and the other the owner. It was so sweet watching their creativity sparking. Well, I had an idea for those amazing acorns too. So we grabbed a whole bunch and went home to craft on 🙂
This craft is super fun as the kids take a big part in creating the gorgeous designs by shaking the bin! That is the best part!
