Fall Crafts

Updated on October 15, 2014

Autumn - My Favorite Season

Nature erupts into one final blaze of glorious color in the fall before resting through the winter. This is my favorite time of the year. The weather is cooler. Nature provides numerous vari-colored leaves, berries, seed pods, pine cones, gourds and many other items that are perfect for crafting.

Perhaps I am just partial to these vibrant earth tones, but I think they make the most beautiful wreaths and other hand made decorations.

Fall holidays are also my favorite. When my children were at home Halloween and Thanksgiving were the times when the they had the most fun, and family gathered to celebrate.

Fall Crafts for Kids

Halloween is fun fall holiday for kids. Here are some craft ideas that older kids can make by themselves, and younger ones will enjoy making with your help.


Paper Plate Jack-O-Lantern

Candy Sucker Ghost

Gather fall leaves, pinecones, berries, seed pods etc. Arrange in a glass bowl for a centerpiece. Have children help you gather the supplies and discuss what each item is.

Glow in the Dark Skeleton Costume

Of course Thanksgiving offers all kinds of fun when it comes to crafts.

A Hand and Foot Turkey is fun for toddlers and up. Of course smaller children will need help with the scissors, but children love to draw around hands and feet. The idea that they can make something that looks completely different with the cutouts is always intriguing.
