Acorn & Nature Crafts

IMG_9379

Yesterday was a beautiful autumn day. With the weather getting cooler everyday, I wanted to make sure that we enjoyed every second of the outdoors as we could before the cold weather hits. We went for a walk to look at the foliage, we flew a kite & cleaned up our yard. The leaves have begun to fall & so have the acorns. Our yard is covered in acorns. My daughter helped me gather up the acorns. We filled up her Hello Kitty bag with them. Now what we were going to do with them all?

Inuit & Igloo Crafts

Igloo made out of a milk jug & cotton balls. The penguins are made out of acorns. Winter kids craft

I can remember when I was a little girl, I could not wait until it would snow. I wasn’t much interested in building snowmen, but I loved having a good snowball fight & I loved to build snow forts, huts and igloos. The snow is hopefully still a little ways away, but I was thinking of my igloo adventures the other day. I had an idea for an igloo craft using an old milk jug.

Acorn Scarecrow Stick Puppet Craft - Fall fun for the kids

Last night I took the dog for a walk around our yard.  While we were walking, I could not help but notice how many acorns were on the ground. There were so many perfect little acorns. I began to pick them up & before I knew it I had an armful. I thought my daughter & I could make some fun fall crafts with them. I wanted to make scarecrows out of them & crafts sticks. My daughter had a different idea in mind & decided to make acorn soup instead.

Salt dough and nature items are our favorites materials to create with hands down. I don’t know what is more fun, gathering the nature or pressing it into the dough and seeing what new and exciting things that you can come up with. There are so many amazing possibilities. We have made nature islands with branches and leaves and pine cone creatures with pipe cleaners. And do you remember when we made those adorable fairies with acorns, sticks and clay? Well those little fairies needed a home and we couldn’t wait to make them one. These sweet pine cone fairy houses are simple and enchanting.

We dug into them once already to make carolers for Christmas and then last night after watching the ‘Polar Express’, I dug into them once more to make a train.
