Make your own Consonant Acorn Game

This is so easy to make with a variety of animals and letters! We enjoy a squirrel and acorn game where the kids fill in the missing consonant (either b or p) in the appropriate word on each nut. The possibilities are endless... you could use penguins and fish, bears and honeypots, dogs and bones, etc. etc. Laminate them for longer use and store in a small manilla envelope. The kids simply pick which squirrel gets the nut by determining whether the word is missing a b or a p. (Example: _al = pal, ma_ = map; _all = ball, we_ = web)
We got ours from a teacher who wasn't using it anymore and it's a big hit over here. I plan to make more over the summer.
