Now that fall has officially begun, the leaves have started falling and filling our backyard with the various colors of the season. Those leaves aren’t the only things falling though. We’ve also noticed an abundance of acorns under our trees now that the weather has finally started to change.
Of course, with so many of these readily available, we wanted to try to find a few ways to use them in our homeschool. So we did what we always do, we headed on over to Pinterest and picked out some of the best fall acorn crafts that we could find and now, we’re sharing those with you!
