Celebrating with Fall Crafts

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 PlaydoughHomemade Cranberry Fall PaintKool Aid Pumpkins, and Cardboard Apple Trees    .

Crafts By Amanda is a site full of craft ideas for both kids and adults. Some of the fall crafts you’ll find include Fall Finger Puppets and Polka Dotted Owl Magnets.

The Frugal Girls is a site all about living frugally, so you know these fall crafts won’t cost a lot in supplies. The crafts include Toilet Paper Pumpkins and a Fall Leaf Banner. 

Mom and artist Maya Donenfeld has lots of great tutorials using things found in nature on her site MayaMade. Look for ideas for Fall LeavesGourd Birds, and Nature Crowns and Cuffs.
