You don’t need a special occasion to make easy acorn cookies though. My two-year-old son becomes more interested in nature every day. We recently took a walk, and he happily collected rocks, leaves and acorns along the way. Then we made easy acorn cookies to reinforce his learning and all the fall feels.
