For all of my preschool pals, here are some craft ideas that I added to the Caps for Sale post:
1. Nature Peddler: Together, plan the number of acorn caps that you’ll need to collect in order to make your nature man. Get outside and get collectin’! Come in, smock up, and paint away. (You’ll be happy to realize that you don’t have to paint the brown caps.) Use a hot glue gun to glue the caps on top of each other and then to assemble the rest of the Peddler.
2. Colorful Peddler: Using tracing paper, trace a picture of the peddler from the book. Read the description of the caps aloud. Ask your child to find the colored pencils and color four caps of each color in the right order.
