Celebrate Fall with These 5 Fun Crafts for Preschoolers!
Fall crafting rivals Christmas crafting in this house. My kids love ghosts, pumpkins, and anything that has to do with leaves. From corn stalk painting to apple stamps, there is a craft for every big and little kid. Here are some fun, simple, yet creative crafts you can do with your child this fall season.
It doesn't get any simpler than this craft. Use The Nerd's Wife's adorable pumpkin pattern to cut out felt pieces then watch your child create his or her own Jack-O-Lantern. What a great way to work on matching, patterns, and spatial awareness.
Do your kids love puzzles? If so, they will love gluing puzzle pieces onto a felt shaped tree to make a fall tree craft. This project is a great way to have your child glue with no mess as they glue the pieces onto the tree. Please see the full directions at Building Our Story.
If you have read a holiday craft post I have written in the past, you may remember that I adore any craft that involves hand or footprints. Catherine's fall handprint wreath is no different. Simply have your child make a handprint on paper, cut out the print and glue it onto a paper plate that is cut out into the shape of a wreath.
When I came across these Patchwork Pumpkins this went to the top of fun craft to-do list this fall. I love the idea of decorating a pumpkin with tissue paper by painting it with Modge Podge. Be sure to check out the full pumpkin patchwork tutorial.
While we are on the topic of Modge Podge crafts, the boys and I enjoyed making foliage wooden letters from inexpensive wooden letters and fall leaves.
What sort of fall crafts do you do with your children?
