The change in seasons brings out our crafty bug, and why not, when there’s so many fun, creative crafts to make with the kids. Check out our favorite ways to celebrate fall artfully:
How cute are these little foxes made from leaves? This is an easy, mess-free craft that’ll have your kids giggling at its cuteness. Simply use store-bought decorative leaves, then glue on fox faces!
There’s nothing wrong with a classic Jack-o-Lantern, but we’re also partial to these pretty luminaries that help light up the darker evenings and celebrate fall’s colors. A great craft for your older kids.
Another mess-free glue craft that’s as cute as can be! Perfect for your toddlers and preschoolers to play with fall’s favorite fruit.
A great way to practice cutting skills, these simple pumpkins are also a fun way to include your kids on your holiday home decorating.
On your next nature walk, gather pretty leaves with your kids and then at home, paint and marker them up to turn them into a festive, found-object garland.
Fall nature crafting isn’t only for leaves — try painting other found objects, from flowers and pinecones to acorns and sticks.
These cute-creepy spiders are easy to make from boxes, pipe cleaners, and googly eyes. Make several and hang them around your kids’ rooms for spooky fun!
Make pretty, seasonal necklaces to wear together using acorns and gold paint.
Create lasting keepsakes with fun, autumnal themes — from bats and owls to turkeys and pumpkins of all sizes, painting pottery with your kids is a fun activity for every age. One idea we love: paint several turkeys or pumpkins to create a Thanksgiving centerpiece. Kids will love showing off their part in the holiday table.
How cute are these little leaf people? Like the leaf foxes, this craft has fun making faces from beautiful fall leaves.
We love these easy, peasy spooky luminaries — simply add paint, googly eyes, and let them glow at night.
These pretty painted acorns are great for kids that like practicing detail — and they’ll love the way they all look when poured into a glass vase together.
Let your little ones get in on the fall baking fun with this adorable tissue paper pie. Change the pie’s “flavor” easily by changing the color of the paper.
Another fun decorative project, this banner is made by cutting apples in half, dipping them in paint, and “stamping” them.
