We recently found some acorns, which around here is a rare thing. Most of the area that we live in is surrounded by maple trees and between the squirrels finding them first and the fallen maple leaves covering them up we really have to search.
After finding the acorns we made two of these little fairies for our upcoming October nature table. This idea comes from the blog Twig and Toadstool
We also added the acorn caps to our painting time and we included some pinecones.
The acorn caps worked well. The pinecones were a little harder to get a print from, but were still fun.
