My parents and in-laws love receiving cute/small crafts from the kids. Plus, these crafts double as their refrigerator decorations.

For a fall-themed craft, we made these keepsake handprint acorns. You can have your child write their name, age, date on the back to document as memories for grandparents' to know.

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • construction paper (yellow/brown)
  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • gel pen
  • acyclic gem rhinestones


  1. Trace your child's hand on yellow construction paper and cut out. The hand will resemble an acorn nut.
  2. Freehand and cut stalk and cupule out of brown construction paper.
  3. Glue together the two pieces and write a greeting message of your choice. I wrote, Happy Fall!
  4. Optional - decorate with gem rhinestones.

Happy fall! Since the leaves are turning colors, I thought it would be fun to make some fall crafts with the kids. Here is a cute acorn craft that you can make with simple supplies you probably already have at home, then hang up to display.

Total Time: 15 minutes



  • construction paper (brown & yellow)
  • brown marker
  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • googly eyes
  • leaves, either real ones from your garden or faux leaves


  1. Freehand sketch and cut acorn pieces.
  2. Since we will be hanging this acorn, I cut out a thin rectangle strip of brown to glue on the back.
  3. Glue acorn pieces together.
  4. Using brown marker, draw acorn details.
  5. Add touch of fall with leaves and add goggly eyes.
