Here is a fun fall project for little hands.
1. Gather your material. You will need newspaper, white glue and/or hot glue, scissors, a brown waxed crayon, a brown pipe cleaner, a brown paper lunch bag, and a piece of brown construction paper.
2. Tear the newspaper and crumple each piece to form several balls of paper.
3. Use the balls of paper to stuff the brown paper bag until it is approximately half full.
4. Fold your piece of brown construction paper in half lengthwise. Use the waxed crayon to draw diagonal lines (towards the left and towards the right) to represent the texture of your acorn's cupule (cap). Turn the paper over and do the same thing on the other side.
5. Use the scissors to create a rounded shape on either side as shown.
6. Fold and glue the bottom of the bag somewhat to give it a rounded shape too.
7. Open the construction paper cupule and make a hole in the centre (using scissors or a pencil). Thread your brown pipe cleaner through the hole. Twist the pipe cleaner under the cupule so it stays put.
8. Glue the construction paper on either side of the brown paper bag to complete your acorn. Arrange children's acorns on a shelf or hang them in a tree to create a simple fall décor.
