This was another of our autumn activities. It’s fun, cute and easy prep (using things I already had around the house).
Before hand, I cut out a square with cardboard (the original activity said to use a paper bag, but I didn’t have any). I also drew the acorn onto the cardboard.
I first had J use a brown crayon to color the “hat” of the acorn and a white crayon for the bottom. He then glued the chocolate unto the hat and the oats onto the bottom. We focused on trying to fill the ENTIRE hat/bottom, making that the goal. Fortunately he had no idea you could EAT the chocolate and so didn’t try until I suggested it (when he was finished with his acorn).
Once the glue was dry we emptied the excess.
