Maybe because we had more rain this summer, there is abundant of acorns this fall. The kids and I would sometime pick some acorns and compete with each other to see who can throw the acorns the farthest across the street. It is a really fun game and you should try it if you haven’t play this game before. Anyway, back to the craft… As I believe in doing our bit in looking after the environment, I try to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as I can. I especially love to use recycle or natural materials for the craft projects I made with my children. So, when I came across this cute but really simple craft project on the FamilyFun site using acorns, I just have to make it with the girl.
Acrylic/tempera paint (brown, orange, green)
Permanent marker (black or any dark colors)
1. Coat each one with orange paint, you may need to put 2 coats like we did.
2. Add a bit of brown/green to the acorn’s point for a stem.
3. Let the paints dry and add a jack-o-lantern face with a permanent marker.
