Acorns, those lovely little oak tree droppings, can easily be found this time of year. Head outside with your little ones, and have them fill their pockets with these treasures, so they can come home and paint them.
- acrylic paint and fine brushes
- white glue
- Gather some acorns. Wash and dry them.
- The nuts are slippery little buggers, and much easier to paint when attached to the cup. If they do separate, you can add a little white glue to the inside to secure the nut. Paint using acrylics and some fine brushes. Whatever kids choose to paint will be great because anything in miniature looks adorable.
