Magnetic Squirrel and Acorn Fall Craft


Our house has a few large trees close to the balcony deck. The trees are home to a few squirrels and our toddler has come to adore their cute antics. Her favourite is when the squirrel grabs an acorn and nibbles away at it with her teeth and hands. So cute!

In fall, Acorns fall to the ground and squirrels pick them up burying them for use in the winter hibernation season. Often, not all the acorns get consumed leading to the birth of new oak trees in a few months. And, these natural cycles continue.

For this fall season, we decided to craft this interesting and ecological critical activity using our special magnetic craft technique. The falling acorn, the squirrel grabbing it and then nibbling away it never fails to put a smile on our toddler's face. And, serves as an important lesson on the cycle of life for little kids to remember.

This is a fun school project to talk about the vital role squirrel plays in sustaining plant communities in our ecosystem. This also makes a perfect STEM fall project idea for kids.
