Fall Leaf Crafts
We love getting creative with leaves! There are many art and craft ideas you can make with dried leaves. You can use them as stencils, draw details to make them into hedgehogs (or other cool creations) or paint them to completely transform them (amongst many other great crafting ideas).
Leaf art is great for toddlers, great for preschool fall crafts table, kindergarteners and older kids – you can easily find a project for every age group.
One of our favourite, super simple projects are these leaf hedgehogs. Cute aren’t they? We welcome you to browse more ideas (we have quite a few, some of our latest are showcased bellow).
Do stop back soon as we have quite a few more planned!
Pine Cone Crafts for Fall
Pinecones are also great for fall crafting with kids. Get out in the nature and pick a few.
Pumpkins and Jack o’Lanterns
When it comes to autumn craft ideas, all thing pumpkins are a must! Making paper strips pumpkins is one of our favorite fall activities as they are both fun to make and make a great fall garland! Just make a whole bunch and string them on a thread to hang wherever you want.
You can mix them up, and make regular construction paper pumpkins as well as scary (or funny looking) Jack o’Lanterns.
These certainly are not the only idea we have shared on our website, here are a few of our recent favorites.
Hedgehogs Projects for Kids
Next in line in our fall crafts for kids ideas list are hedgehogs!
If you are a regular visitor to our website, you know I have a thing for hedgehogs (one of my favorite crafting subjects), so I always hardly wait for autumn to get near so that I can create more! These painted rock hedgehogs are one of my personal favorites, and as fall is still warm and for a generous part dry enough to go out on nature walks, gathering rocks can easily be on your list.
No smooth stones nearby? Worry not! There are many more fun hedgehog fall crafts ideas for kids to choose from:
Fox Fall Craft Ideas
We continue our collection of fall crafts for kids with yet another fun forest animal theme. Foxes! One of the first projects we ever made were paper roll foxes and this duo is still one of my favorites. Adorable aren’t they?
Owl Fall Crafts for Kids
Great for fall crafting and Halloween crafting – owls! These feathery friends are a great craft for fall, as are other woodland animals.
Sunflower Fall Crafting Ideas
While most flowers are a “thing” of the spring, there is one bright exception – the sunflower!
Scarecrow Fall Crafts for Kids
If you are thinking about fall crafts to sell, scarecrow mason jars are a great one! This simple idea is fun both for kids and kids at heart to make and can make the most wonderful autumn decor ever.
Another woodland friend to craft this fall – bear.
Crafting with Seeds (soon)
Autumn is a great time of the year to observe changes in nature and talk about four seasons.
With the colder months fast approaching, the time to offer a little bit of help to our feathery friends approach too. Birds will appreciate any seeds that come their way so why not make a wonderful DIY bird feeder on your own.
