C6 was very busy this afternoon cracking open acorns. I think she'd make a good historical interpreter (like an interpreter/craftsfolk at Old Sturbridge Village). She explains exactly what she is doing. I liked that.

As you can see, she is planning on making dye. As C41 mentioned (Ahem. Annoyingly commented upon seeing this video), it might actually be the outside, or "skin" of the acorns that should be used for dye. The bit that she is tossing over the side of the porch. No matter, if we ever get to the making dye stage we'll do a little trial and error.
