Here is a super cute, quick and easy DIY project for kids for a long autumn weekend! We made our own animal farm out of collected chestnut: two giraffes, one dog and one centipede. Aren´t they lovely?
October is the best months for this project – you´ll need some fallen chestnuts and there are plenty of them lying around – we had loads of fun collecting them with kids.
You´ll need a hand wrench, a permanent marker, a child scissors, some toothpicks and a pack of thumbtacks
This is the tricky part….
….you need to bore the wholes so that the animal can stand steady on its feet….
The rest can be down even by the small hands!
You can make many different forms – even monsters out of chestnut!
It´s all up to your imagination – HAVE FUN!
