Last fall Esther wrote a really cute post about collecting acorns and chestnuts and turning them into little ‘chestnut chaps’. I thought it was such a cute idea and definitely worth repeating for this theme week. I love the idea of bundling up your family and taking a long walk together to collect nuts and leaves. And making the little men (and animals) is easy — you just poke some wooden skewers or matchsticks into the chestnuts and form them however you wish. A really simple project, perfect for this time of year.
