Fall may in fact be our favorite season. From the holidays that occur during these months to the changing colors outside, we’re all about fall-themed activities inside the home as well as out! If a chilly day has you nestled inside instead of jumping in a pile of leaves in the back yard, here’s a few ideas to bring the great outdoors inside with you. We’ve perused Pinterest for some creative fall-themed arts and crafts ideas, and we must say these don’t disappoint!
Autumn Handprint Tree
We love this idea from Arty Crafty Kids, which requires hardly any supplies but insures lots of room for imagination. After your child traces his/her hand and arm, they can paint or color it in. Next, take a q-tip and dip it into different paint colors to create the leaves. Talk about being one with nature!
Paper Plate Turkey Wreath
Gobble gobble! This silly turkey is fun to create and makes a great hanging decoration for the wall or fridge when it’s done. I Heart Crafty Things has all the details over on her blog. We’re loving the googly eyes!
Autumn Leaf Sun Catchers
Sun catchers are a beautiful way to still get the benefits of gorgeous fall weather while staying cozy indoors! Crafts on Sea will take you through every step of the way. And lucky for us, these leaves don’t need raking.
Painting with Nature
Painting with nature brings a whole new meaning to using your resources. Kids Craft Room has lots of ideas on incorporating nature into art by painting on pine cones and buck eyes to make the most beautiful creations! When in doubt, use what you have. Great motto!
