Paper Strip Acorn Craft

acorn paper strip craft

I've never seen a real acorn! So weird to think that they're as common to some people as pinecones are to me.

This paper strip acorn craft is good for an autumn theme or a Chicken Little fairy tale theme (an acorn fell on chicken little's head). But it's also a great craft for kids to practice patterning (laying out colors in a repeating pattern) and scissor skills. Depending on the age of the child, you may need to help them cut out the acorn but any child who can use safety scissors can participate in cutting out the paper strips from colored construction paper.

If you feel that cutting strips of paper is too difficult for your child, try one of the Autumn Scissor Skills projects instead!
