Homemade Fun: Gumnut Gnomes

The gumnuts we collected at the park have been transformed…into a family of gnomes. Perfect for Immy, who loves imaginative play, and simple to make with a little wool, felt and paint pens. The small nuts make perfect tea cups for our gnomes too :)

And if you haven’t checked out We Play yet this week be sure to stop by for a whole host of fun play ideas.

    So cute! Love these little gnomes.
    Called my sons over to see these and they both liked them.
    Then, Big Bro (6) asked if it was to learn about sharing, as he noticed that there are "3 little acorn cups but 4 gnomes"…
