The abundance of acorns on our property is amazing. Now you can see where the inspiration for the name Little Acorn Learning came from.
Today during outdoor time Maia and I made necklaces with them while the babies played nearby. I used a small screwdriver to make holes in them and we strung them on a double strand of thread with a long doll making needle.
I allowed Maia to help with the stringing ... if you do this with small children - be sure to be RIGHT there guiding your child's hands, as they do not quite understand that the needle will come through the other side and get their fingers. Also, babies love to put the acorns in their mouth so we are very careful to keep them out of reach and the necklace will be closely monitored for loose acorns in the house.
