This craft can also be used to review math concepts. Children can count how many of each object they have found. The can make a graph to graph the number of each object they have found.

You can also review math facts. Place a certain amount of acorns in the cup. For example, tell your child that the squirrel has ten acorns in his cup. He is going to give you four acorns. (Take 4 acorns out of the cup and give them to your child.) Ask your child, "How many acorns does the squirrel have left?" Keep playing this game changing the amount of acorns the squirrel gives your child until your child can do it without having to count. You can also give your child all the acorns to start and have him give the squirrel a certain amount of acorns. Young children will enjoy this activity even better if you pretend you are the squirrel and talk for him.
