Kids will love to help you collect acorns! If you are nervous about bringing them inside for play due to bugs, you can soak the acorns in a bucket of water outside overnight. Discard any of the acorns that float as they have air inside and are likely homes to insect grubs! All other acorns should be safe for play but if you are are still unsure this can be an outside activity!
We've practiced putting the letters in order in our egg tray. (We got ours from The Dollar Store but here is a similar option.). Our daughter E was very motivated by this task!I purposely chose acorns that could stand up without wobbling over. We spelled the names of people (and cows) that we are thankful for to use in a gratitude project. This is a great Thanksgiving gift that can be emailed or printed out and framed!
Do you have acorns where you live? I'm curious about how many states have these fun fall materials available for free!
