Acorns are fun and so versatile. Many times they are thought of as part of Fall decor or activities, but could also fit perfectly within nature & trees, animals & their food, and more. I remember going on nature hikes as a kid and collecting as many as I could, it was like I was carrying a bag full of treasure. These activities are full of acorn treasures that are sure to delight your children. I’ve included literacy, math, art & crafts, sensory and science to round out a Super Awesome Acorn Unit Study.
