After playing with our fall sensory box, we kept with the theme and did a fall related craft.
Adding texture to a craft is always fun. I found a similar idea to this on Pinterest and we just went with it.
First, I drew and cut out a simple acorn on white paper. Then I gave Olivia some brown markers and she went to work.
Once she had colored all that she actually wanted to, I put glue all over the picture. I demonstrated how to put a bean on, and then let her at it.
She went right to it. It's great fine motor skill practice!
I had to encourage her to keep going at a few points. I thought she would be a little more interested than she was. She got glue on her fingers and she wasn't a fan, so it was very distracting! :)
Sh e eventually just grabbed the beans a handful at a time and started dropping them on the acorn. I guess that works too.
The finished product
I glued it on to a piece of construction paper. It got a little heavy.
