How can I use this resource?

With this resource, you can make 40 different figurines with chestnuts and other fruits that you can collect from gardens and parks. It’s best to use a sturdy paper bag or basket to store them, as the fruits mold easily. You can follow the simple instructions to cut, drill, glue, and decorate your figurines with paper confetti, felt-tip pens, or markers. In general, drill all holes first and then put all large parts together and only at the end glue the rest of the parts on. You can use these figurines as decorations, gifts, or toys. You can also use them as prompts for writing or storytelling activities. For example, you can write a story about the adventures of your chestnut figurine.

About chestnut crafts

Chestnut crafts are a fun and inexpensive way to create amazing things with natural materials. Chestnuts are  harvested in autumn and can be found in gardens and parks. Chestnuts can be used to make different shapes and objects by connecting them with matchsticks or toothpicks. You can also use other fruits such as acorns or pine cones to make your figurines more diverse and colorful.

Chestnut crafts are good for developing your fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and spatial awareness. Fine motor skills are the ability to use small muscles in the hands and fingers to perform tasks such as grasping, cutting, tying, and writing. Hand-eye coordination is the ability to coordinate your movements with what you see. Spatial awareness is the ability to understand how objects relate to each other in space. Chestnut crafts help you improve these abilities by requiring you to assemble the chestnuts, matchsticks, toothpicks, and glue in precise ways. Chestnut crafts also help you express your artistic and creative side by allowing you to make different characters and scenes with chestnuts.
