On Friday afternoon I took Oscar to the reserve to collect acorns.
He loved it!
He collected some in his basket...
and then placed some onto a strip of bark,..
and then filled his pockets.
Oscar was having fun but at the same time he was learning so many things.
~ He learnt a new word 'Acorn'
~ He learnt where acorns came from by picking them off a tree branch
~ As he lined them up onto the bark he was counting "two, two, four six"
~ He was experiencing different natural textures
~ He used his coordination skills
~ and later at home made patterns with them.
We heart acorns!
