Woody, Hazel, and Little Pip
We finished up our celebration of squirrels and nuts last week with the story of Woody, Hazel, and Little Pip by Elsa Beskow. In it, two acorn children adventure into the woods, and Mr. Squirrel goes out searching for them. After reading this story, we made little acorn children just like the ones in the story. We painted simple wooden peg dolls with watercolor paints. Then, we gave them eyes and cute little acorn caps. Much time has been spent playing with our new acorn children. I love how handmade and child-made they look!
