8 Easy Fall Crafts For Kids

As the weather turns cooler in most areas of the country, you’ll most likely be looking for ways to keep the kids occupied. Check out these 8 easy fall crafts which can be fun for the whole family.

1. Animal Leaf Art

Take a walk outside with the kiddos to gather leaves – lots and lots of leaves. The more variety of leaves, the better. (Original source: http://charlottesfancy.com/2011/10/03/when-is-a-leaf-not-a-leaf/)

2. Acorn Frame

A fall craft you’ll treasure for years to come, the acorn frame is super-easy to assemble and would look great on the mantle holding a fall-themed family picture. All you need is acorns, a photo frame, and some glue. (Original source: http://crafts.slides.kaboose.com/310-quick-and-easy-fall-crafts/2)

3. Owl Pine Cone

Making this owl is a hoot! Dress your owl up or keep him (or her) casual depending on the eyelash trim you choose.  Once finished, use it to decorate the mantle, or place outside on your porch. (Original source: http://www.freekidscrafts.com/wise_guy_owl_pine_cone_craft-e46.html)

4. Pine Cone Bird Seed Holder

Chances are that you made this craft when you were a child. Share the fun with your kids. The easy craft will have birds flying into your yard before you know it. (Original source: http://therapyfunzone.com/blog/2011/09/pine-cone-bird-feeder-and-spreading-with-a-knife/)

5. Corn Cob Glow Lantern

Don’t you wish you had come up with this “bright idea”? Recycle plastic bottles to make an a-maize-ing craft that’ll keep you bathed in light for hours. (Original source: http://familyfun.go.com/magazine/familyfun-magazine-archive/familyfun-november-2010/a-maize-ing-lanterns-940451/)

6. Chalkboard Pumpkins

There’s no need to limit this craft to Halloween. Keep the pumpkin on your porch throughout fall and change its message from “Happy Halloween” to “Happy Thanksgiving,” or even something fun like “Autumn’s Here!” (Original source: http://ashbyfamilyblog.blogspot.com/2009/10/csb-update-pumpkin-craft.html#axzz1ZkdDUyay)

7. Pom Pom Trees

Grab a stick from outside, and then just start gluing colorful pom poms onto a Styrofoam ball. I dare you to find an easier kid-friendly craft. With a large enough family (or by letting kids make two or three trees each), you can quickly have your own miniature forest in your living room.

8. Leaf Wind Catcher

If you love to see leaves blowing in the wind, keep the sensation going long after the leaves have left the trees with this easy craft that uses fabric leaves instead. (Original source: http://www.centsationalgirl.com/2009/09/whimsical-autumn-leaves-windcatcher/)
