This Acorn And Twig Sculpture Craft is perfect for little hands to make because it combines two of their favourite things… collecting and creating. You can even spread it over two days with one activity being collecting the twigs and acorn cups and the other being to make the sculpture.
And the great thing about this craft is it’s easy to do when out and about. All you need is a packet of Blu-Tack plus some twigs and acorn shells.
How To Make The Acorn And Twig Sculpture Craft
Remove a marble-sized piece of blue-Tack from the pack and then twist the rest into a mound to stick all your twigs in to.
Next carefully pick smallish sized twigs of different height to push into your blu tack.
Use the extra piece of Blu-Tack you still have left to stick the acorn cups onto the sides of the twigs.
You can also push acorn cups that have stalks still on them into the mound of Blu-Tack.
This is a really nice calming craft to do and kids can spend a lot of time thinking about where they want to put their twigs and acorns. I’d advise using larger twigs for very young kids so they don’t snap them when they get pushed into the blu-tack.
