I love the concept of the nature table, to help children understand the turn of the seasons and the bounty of nature in all her abundance! I have created these little acorn peg dolls as we are just beginning to feel Autumn in the air here in the UK now, and I thought they would be grand for our little seasonal table, plus, well, any excuse to make wooden peg doll friends really! My daughter made these with me and she and her little brother have had hours of fun playing with them already! We painted ours in varying shades of green, but autumnal orange and brown colours would work well too.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- Some tiny wooden peg dolls approx 3cm tall ( I bought mine on ebay)
- Acorn caps
- acrylic paints
- non toxic varnish
- Hot glue gun
WHAT TO DO:
- Decide which dolls each acorn cap will go on and using the hot glue gun, put a generous blob of glue on the head and stick on the cap. Repeat till they are all done
- Next, paint the bodies in acrylic paint of varying shades and paint on two little dots for eyes
- Once dry, put on a coat of non toxic varnish- That's it!!!
