Mini Pumpkin craft for kids

Hi there! I was scrolling around on the interenet the other day and came across some great ideas for easy and cheap kids crafts for halloween.

Mini pumpkins!! from acorns!

Want a festive decoration that won't clutter up your porch? Try a patch of mini pumpkins small enough to fit in your child's hand.
  • Acorns
  • Orange acrylic paint
  • Brown acrylic paint
  • Black permanent marker
  1. Remove the caps from a handful of acorns.
  2. Coat each one with orange acrylic paint, adding a bit of brown to the acorn's point for a stem.
  3. Let the paints dry, then add a jack-o'-lantern face with a black permanent marker.
As several FamilyFun readers who made this craft found out, some acorns are infested with weevils. The weevils feed on the nutmeat while they develop over the summer, and when the acorns hit the ground in the fall, these insects know it's time to start chewing their way out and into the ground -- or your home. Reader Janie Foster offers a solution: before you start the project, bake the acorns in a slow oven to kill the weevils. Just be careful not to burn the acorns!
So i had to get the kids out to find some acorns so that we could get this project going!!! In between showers... we found some!!

So after collecting it was time to bake for a while in the oven... oh and in case you are wondering.... it was NOT easy to get the acorn hat tops off!! :o)

Our pumpkins did not turn out as nice as the directions... but they sure had fun making them!!
  We got a little crazy and used colored markers to color too!!

Happy creating!!!
