Acorns, acorns everywhere

April 3, 2008


Well they may not be native, but we have hundreds of them, courtesy of the favourite climbing tree at the end of the driveway.  The kids have found many uses for this Autumn’s bumper crop, including, but not limited to…


 Roadways for the cars to drive along…


Counting and sorting…


Fairy bouquets from the caps…


 Food for the farm animals (toy ones only, we don’t have space for the real thing)…


Wheels for trains with cap domes


Heads and hats for pine people…


Seats, hats, cups, bowls etc for the little people…

… and of course plenty scattered around the nature table, floor, windowsills, hiding in gumboots, rolling under the piano, you get the picture.  What are you doing with your seasonal abundances?
