Our school's big Winter Fair is on Saturday. Hels and I prepared an ornament craft for one of the gift-making rooms. We began by soaking 400 acorn caps and drilling holes in each one with an awl (soaking keeps them from cracking apart).
Helen then wrote up this set of directions to go in the room so the kids could basically do the craft themselves. We will lay out white fleece, colored fleece (red, white, green, and blue), bowls of warm soapy water, a variety of colored string, tacky glue, and the acorn caps. Here's how to make them:
I hope the kids have fun. If any readers are coming to the Winter Fair, I'll be in the cafe all day. Stop by and introduce yourself!
