While humans enjoy the harvest of apples, pumpkins, and corn each fall, our squirrel friends enjoy a bountiful acorn harvest. Make and play this miniature acorn-toss game to celebrate the season.

What You'll Need
  • empty note-card box
  • decorative paper
  • bottle cap
  • 3 empty creamer cups
  • glue
  • paint
  • 3 acorns
What You'll Do

1. Remove the clear lid from an empty note-card box. Cover the box with decorative paper. Use a bottle cap to trace three circles onto the box. Help your child cut out the circles.

2. Place clean creamer cups in the holes. Cut out three different-colored rings from paper and glue them to the box to hold the creamer cups in place.

3. Paint three small acorns to match the colors of the rings. Let them dry.

 

To Play 

Place the acorns in the box and put on the lid. Try to get each acorn into its matching hole.
