6 Fall Crafts to Try With Your Family
There is no better way to celebrate fall than with a few fall-themed crafts. We even threw in a spooky craft that’s perfect for Halloween!
Find a new, creative way to tap into your child’s inner artist. For this project, all you need are some smooth, round rocks, paintbrushes, and some paint. Let your child turn their stones into whatever they want. Give them silly faces or let them paint a unique design on them.
For some Halloween options, have your child turn their stones into candy corn, a spooky ghost, or even add eight creepy legs using pipe cleaners for a sneaky spider!
Scarecrows have a long history of use by farmers to help scare crows away. But during fall, scarecrows have also become the perfect way to decorate your home.
This year, instead of buying a scarecrow from your local craft store, turn it into a fun project with your kids! Start by finding the perfect old pair of clothes. From there, you’ll need some straw, wooden stacks, string, a bag for the face, and something to create the face with (i.e. markers, a mask, buttons, etc.).
Take this project one step further and create a scarecrow for everyone in the family!
Fall is the perfect time to take advantage of the leaves as they change to beautiful colors. To start this craft, you’ll need some white paper plates, glue, string, and some fresh leaves. If you don’t have leaves, have your children draw leaves on colored paper and cut them out!
Cut a hole out of the center of the paper plate and turn it facing downwards. Now you have your leaf shape. From there, your children can arrange their leaves around their wreath and glue them down. Tie a string around the top so they can hang their bright leaf wreaths on their bedroom doors!
Looking for a delicious snack? Dip pretzels in melted white chocolate dyed orange. Then, before the chocolate dries, add a green M&M for the stem! Follow this recipe for a fun and easy way to get your family in the kitchen this fall.
No fall decorations are complete without a proper Jack-O-Lantern. Head out to your favorite pumpkin patch or just stop by your local grocery store to pick up some pumpkins. From there, decide how you want to decorate them.
Carve a scary or cute pumpkin face or decorate the pumpkin with markers and paint. Whatever you do, make sure you set out your final products in a place where your kids can enjoy and appreciate them!
Pine Cone Bird Feeders
Pine cone bird feeders are a great craft that they can see in action. Start with some fresh pine cones. Using a toothpick, add some peanut butter to the pinecone. Then stick some birdseed on that pine cone and hang it from a tree or your front window and wait for the birds!
