I don't know what happened. When daylight savings time started (ended?) my munchkins have turned into monsters between 4 and 6 pm. They get antsy-crazy! My house resembles a college dorm on a Saturday night. To channel that energy, I've tried some more crafts. We decided to make acorns. Using a paper grocery bag, I had kids color brown and orange.
Notice sweet Brielle hanging out over there. She doesn't know what kind of family she's gotten herself into.
While they were coloring their orange and brown sheets, I drew acorns.
Don't worry, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to construct such an image. Really basic shape, it turns out.
Then we tore the brown colored paper. I squiggled on some glue to the top part of the acorn. Kids put torn brown bits there.
Next I squiggled glue on the southern part of the acorn.
Kids put on the orange pieces.
Just to make it stand out, I retraced the black lines of my original acorn drawing and wrote their names.
Okay, back to the crazy college scene....oh my!
Three kids under four, life is an adventure!
