Do you have little ones at home who are just as crafty as they are outdoorsy? If so, this post is for you!
The acorn is an excellent source of inspiration for kids’ crafts! There are so many ways that your child’s imagination can grow with these natural materials. From acorn squirrels to acorn bracelets on their wrists, there’s an endless number of fun things kids can make from acorns.
We’ve compiled this list of 15 acorn crafts for kids that we know they’ll love! It will take some hunting around your yard or local park to gather all the supplies needed (for the crafts using real acorns), but it’ll be worth it when they see the amazing things they can create with them. These simple DIYs will help you spend quality time with your child while teaching them about nature, science, and art.
