Keep Little Hands Busy With an Acorn Craft

Do you have kids home for the holiday break and a few acorns leftover from your fall crafting?  Then here’s a fun little craft project to keep the kids busy for a little while, brought to you by Anu of Nalle’s House.


Anu had plenty of help from her young son on this project.  They pulled the tops off of a few acorns, and he painted them red.  Once the red paint dried, he added small dots with white paint.  Anu used hot glue to attach the acorn hats back onto the acorns.  With the polka dot tops, they look like little toadstools!  A few of the acorn toadstools were turned into necklaces by drilling holes near the top and stringing twine through them.  Others were left as-is to display on shelves in their house.  ” I think these toadstools would make a super cute garland, too,” Anu points out.  What a cute idea, and a fun way to spend some time crafting with your kids!
