He was fascinated by how different the two types of acorns looked. The one on the left is the type I collected near his school to make the napkin rings. The one on the right is from the soccer field.
We decided to make a wreath. We took a cheap paper plate, cut off the outside edge, and then cut out the center. This left us with a basic wreath shape.
Then we used the glue gun to attach the acorns around the perimeter. I operated the glue gun and Trevor placed the acorns. While he is extremely responsible and very cautious, I don't think at 5 he is old enough to operate a glue gun yet. That was fine with him.
