StArt - Nuts to you

This is our first StArt project although it is not the first time we've read a book and done an art project to match it.

We read the book Nuts to You! by Lois Ehlert.

First we went outside and picked up some acorns.

Then I printed out an acorn template and taped it to the bottom of a pan. I put some paint on the edges then plopped in a few acorn and let the girls tilt the pan back and forth to paint the acorn. (Similar art projects use marbles and probably work better.)

The acorns did not roll very well but the final product was still very cute.

For more StArt projects check out A Mommy's Adventures.


  1. I bet the acorns themselves ended up looking pretty neat in the end, too!

  2. I have tons of acorns I found in JDaniel's pants pockets. I need to try this idea.

  3. Well one has to try these things and that is how you find amazing crafts! Love that you had a go and that the result still looked fab!!!
