Directions

  1. WHAT YOU DO

    Begin by deciding whether the acorn will be a face, a body, a nose---or a spaceship! Then add on details, making up creatures as you go along. You'll need a quick-drying glue because the pieces are rather tiny for little hands. You can also use playdough to secure the bits to your acorns.
