I love a simple craft for kids, when they are actually doing the work and it is not me cutting and arranging everything. We loved making a fall wreath using acorns this past week. With all of the acorns in our yard, we have been having fun collecting them.
This week we are kicking off our tot school time and I am excited for the intentional time to play and learn together. One thing I always try to remember is to keep things simple. I love when we can use what we have to learn and explore.
Want to make your own fall wreath with your kids?
Gather your Supplies:
- Acorns and fall leaves
- Cardstock wreath cut out (thinner paper will be difficutl because of the weight of the acorns)
- Ribbon or Twine
Head outside together to gather the acorns and fall leaves.
If you do not have acorns, just use fall leaves or head to a local park for an acorn hunt. Count how many acorns you have found together.
Color the wreath cut out before you glue the acorns on.
You could even have your little one paint the wreath before you glue the acorns on it!
Put some glue on the wreath cut out.
You can either spread a layer of glue over the whole wreath or put dots of glue on the wreath.
Attach a piece of ribbon or twine to the wreath so you have a way to hang it.
That is it! Simple, right? Throughout the entire craft, I was reminded to embrace the little moments. Seeing my daughter’s excitement over her fall wreath was such a gift. These small moments that sprinkle throughout our days matter.
