Ha! Not at all - just a Girl Scout Leader. I actually picked this craft because it was so easy. Our troop made them last weekend, and that's all I kept thinking about every time I read this thread, so I had to share.

Last year, my oak trees produced MANY more acorns than this year. I hate the little suckers...makes a mess on my driveway!

I rake 'em up, and throw them in the woods...my squirrels and other wildlife think they're at a buffet!

They look tasty!

I read the WTOP article. I'm not sure I agree that acorns risk having mice. We have so many squirrels, I don't think the mice can compete. (In fact, I've never seen a mouse around here. I have seen a possum, though. And lots of rabbits.)

I am stealing that idea for my Brownie troop! It will be a fun craft for out Juliette Gordon Low birthday party later this month!
