12 Fall Kids’ Crafts

One of my favorite things to do is crafting and creating with Ridley, our two year old. He loves to watercolor paint and finger paint as well as to play with pipe cleaners. Oh, and he loves cutting paper with scissors.  Since I’ve been bitten by the “Fall-lovin’ bug,” I’ve been doing some research on Fall crafts for kids!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing these awesome crafts! We’ll be adding several to our ‘to do’ list! :)

  4. wow, love so many of these. I think we are going to do the leaf print art and the garland….:)

    we just started pulling out our fall decor. About 4 years ago I made this huge “natural inspired/looking” floral centerpiece out of tissue paper and love what it looks like when I put it in a red vase….


  5. I posted this idea for a fall table centerpiece. Looks really neat, and cost me NOTHING! We gathered all our decor from nature. :)

  6. ohgoodgolly…you know how you find a blog and you get right away whether that person’s tastes vibe with yours? I totally get that from your blog. Love your projects, ideas, photography…so glad I followed the link from Today’s Creative Blog!

  7. I’m a kindergarten teacher and always search for easy fun crafts for them and this list is great! i love seeing the parents proud of their kids when they see their artwork. thanks so much. :)

  8. Thankyou for these ideas! Looking forward to doing them with my boys!

  9. Love your ideas… specially the colorful leaf… it’s really easy and pretty..thank you for sharing

  10. Great ideas! Love the idea of framing leaves, and the last leaf paint picture is stunning!

  11. I really want to do the Pinecone Turkey but the link you have there brings me to the salt leave cookies…is it possible to get the correct link! Thanks :)

  12. Thanks for sharing these!

  13. I just found your blog & I LOVE it!!! I love how you said the home is a matter of the heart- so true! I hope to learn from you and your posts as my fiancé and me begin our journey! We will have our own place in less than a year! Thanks for the ideas :)


  14. Just a note to say I love the simplicity of the Leaf Art, it’s beautiful. Great idea. It made me smile. Many times we forget the simple things in life. Thank you for the reminder, Enza

  15. These are great, Myra!

    We used to make a variation of the pine cone turkey. We traced around the boys’ hands on orange and yellow construction paper, then they cut out the tracings of their hands. Instead of individual “feathers,” we used the hand tracing as the feathers on pinecone turkeys. And we DID use these as placecards for Thanksgiving dinner! They were a big hit. :)

    VERY cute ideas! I am so looking forward to doing some of these with my children! Thanks for doing the research for me :o)

  18. So many cute ideas! I can’t wait to make some of these this fall. Last autumn we made a banner that turned out pretty cute (http://www.travelingmel.com/index.php/TravelingMel/2011/11/10/fall-banner). Looking forward to putting it up on the Equinox.

  19. What a great list. I think there are even a few that my 20-month-olds could do. Love the hand print family tree! Thanks so much!

  20. What great ideas! I particularly love the fact that the felt leaf garland can double as a lacing activity for a bored toddler. Plus, cute!

    Just wanted to let you know that I’ve featured you on our weekly roundup of the Internet’s best blog posts! Happy blogging!

  21. Can’t find the leaf art tutorial(katie brown’s website doesn’t show it). What kind of paint did you use?

  22. I love these ideas, they are all so cute! I made a few small modifications to them to fit my personal specifications. I recently started volunteering at a Rec Center, tutoring kids and their homework room needs some serious sprucing up! I wrote a blog post about what I intend to do with the kids and I linked back to your site to give you credit for finding/coming up with all these great kids crafts!

  23. What wonderful craft ideas! I am hoping to have my kids try some of these this year and planning on sharing a link to your ideas as a reblog on homemakinghearts.com
    Thank you!
