Activity of the Week: Acorn Pumpkins

[Source:  Shannon’s Tot School; Image from Family Fun Magazine]

Great Fine Motor Craft but even better for social skills role playing, story telling, conversation, emotions work and more.   Paint them with letters of the alphabet or numbers instead for more therapy ideas. Write action words on pumpkins and put them in a bowl to choose a brain break or gross motor task.

Make sure you bake the plain acorns in an oven first before you start this craftivity – to make sure you kill any buggies (weevils, eww!) lurking inside the acorns!  Original craft as seen on Family Fun Magazine does not include this vital step.
