We live near the mountains, so it’s no wonder fall is such a special time of the year. I love everything about it: bundling up in the cooler weather (but not too cold), seeing the brilliant colors on the trees, taking trips to go apple picking, drinking warm cider, and watching the vegetable stands fill up with the fall harvest. There are lots of a ways to celebrate the season with your kids, and one of my favorites is making fall crafts.
Celebrating with Fall Crafts
Kids love making fall crafts, and even if you don’t consider yourself “crafty”, it’s a fun way to spend time together. You can find crafts ideas in books at your local library, and there’s a lot of them online as well. If you’re looking for some ideas, here are some sites you may not have considered but are certainly worth checking out:
The site Housing a Forest is a great kids’ craft site! Fall activities on this site include: making Erupting Fall Playdough, Homemade Cranberry Fall Paint, Kool Aid Pumpkins, and Cardboard Apple Trees .
