Handprint Acorns

For a fun fall art activity, grab some paint and make handprint acorns!


You’ll need: construction paper, a paintbrush, brown and white paint




  1. Mix some brown and white paint together to create a tan color. Paint this color on your hand and press it onto the white paper. You can press your hand with your fingers together or with them a little spread out to make different looking acorns. Press as many handprints on the page as you like to more than one acorn.
  2. Using just the brown paint, paint on the top of the acorn at the base of the handprint to make your acorn!


That’s all you need to do to make these adorable acorns! You can repeat this process using only your thumbprint to make smaller acorns.
