Submitted by: April Oliver  

Need: walnuts, red paint, white paint, green felt, toothpick, glue and green ribbon.

Directions: Give each child a walnut. The child paints the walnut red and when dry, paints on white dots with a toothpick.  When dry, glue on small piece of green felt at the top shaped like small leaf (adult should cut about 1 inch square piece of felt and put diagonal slits in the edge to make the appearance of 2 leaves).  Then glue on a piece of green ribbon about 3 or 4 inches long.  You will have beautiful Strawberry walnuts.  These make great Christmas ornaments as well.  They are red and green and hang on the tree!  Our tree has about 30 of them as do the trees of both sets of grandparents.
