This Fall activity is perfect for toddlers and young children – and they’ll have fun while learning!

My kids and I went outside one day for a walk and found a large oak tree with many acorns on the ground. We decided to pick some and create something fun with them. This activity is great for learning colors, fine motor skills (holding a tiny acorn and a brush) and hand-eye coordination (painting takes skill!). So, this Fall activity is perfect for toddlers and young children and they’ll have fun while learning.

You’ll need:

Step 1:
Collect acorns. This is a fun step for the kids! Go outside and find as many acorns as you can and brush them of any dirt or soil.

Step 2:
Squeeze a little bit of each paint color onto a paper plate and paint the acorns with the paint brush. Let dry.

You can use these colorful acorns to practice color sorting, create a sensory bin or simply use as a vase filler!
