Acorn Fleet

We found loads of acorns on the way home from daycare today. Turns out acorns turn easily into a fleet for the Autumn puddles (I am sure there will be some soon…) with the help of tooth picks.
Only Mum got excited by this horse over here, but maybe somebody else has a child who values this type of creativity too?



  1. Haha, they are the best!

  2. I love your horse. Sigh. Kids. They don’t appreciate these things sometimes, do they?

    1. Thank you, good that somebody has great taste!

      Kids and appreciation, sigh, there is a reason I don’t bother to try to cook anything special just for them… 😉

  3. Love these – especially the horse!! We’re going acorn gathering today – you have inspired us!!

    1. Thank you for liking my horse!:) Glad to have inspired you!

  4. They look nice. We are finding lots of chesnuts 🙂

    1. Have you made anything special out of the chestnuts?

  5. Very cool idea! My moms house has oak tree acorns that would mighty impressive creations. They are so huge that it sounds like a firecracker whenever one falls on the patio! We could make an armada!

    1. How cool would that be?! Now you kniw wgat to do when you go back 🙂

  6. These are wonderful. I think my LOs would really enjoy sending a fleet of acorn ships down the river. I must try this out. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

    1. Let me know if they float 🙂 hope you have a good time!

  7. Never did this with acorns, but with conquers. Great fun 🙂

    1. Reliving childhood 😉

    1. Simple fun for simple minds 😉
