Supplies Needed:

  • Brown Paper, torn into small pieces – we used both a light and a dark brown
  • Googly Eyes, we prefer the larger eyes but any size will do
  • Black paper, cut into a smile shape
  • Pink Buttons, optional
  • White paper, free hand draw an acorn shape or use our free template

How to make Torn Paper Acorn Craft

  1. Tear brown paper into pieces, make both small and larger pieces.
  2. Fill your acorn template with your torn paper using a glue stick. We like to apply glue in one area at a time.  We prefer to start the bottom of the page and work our way up ending with the acorn cap. 
  3. Add googly eyes, black mouth and pink button cheeks to your little guy. 🙂

Tips for making this Acorn Craft

  • Use two shades of brown paper if possible. This helps break up the bottom of the acorn from the acorn caps. Go on a quick scavenger hunt to see if you can find any real acorns in your neighborhood. If not, you can find pictures online for a quick little lesson on acorns. 
  • The pink button cheeks are optional but we love to add a little personality to our paper art and googly eyes are a fun way to do it! 
  • We tend to use cardstock when creating paper crafts because it’s sturdier and helps the project last longer but construction paper is perfectly fine to use!
  • Let your kids tear the pieces of paper! This is a great way for developing pincher muscles and working on fine motor skills for your young learners! Ripping smaller pieces helps strengthen their fingers for other daily activities and important skills like holding a pencil, buttoning their shirt, etc.
