It is finally Fall and what better way to start celebrating than breaking out the Fall crafts with your kids!  Making crafts is a wonderful way to help your children be creative and can also reinforce developmental skills such as coloring and cutting and early school skills.  Below are some crafts that won’t take a lot of time or money and are guaranteed fun!

Fall Paper Plate Wreaths

What you need:

  • Paper Plate
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Leaves

These are neat because you can either let your child draw and cut out leaves or go on a nature walk with them and pick up leaves that have changed color and fallen onto the ground for them to take home and use for their wreath.

 

Footprint Turkeys

What you will need:

  • Paint
  • Picture of Child
  • Scissors
  • Glue

This is an awesome option for kiddos who are a little scared to get messy because it pushes them to feel the paint texture on their feet. Also, what parents don't love handprint/footprint art. There is also a modified version if they absolutely will not get the paint on their feet, trace them with different color construction paper!

Pumpkin Apple Stamps

What you will need:

  • Apples
  • Orange Paint
  • Construction Paper
  • Sharpie/ Black Markers

This is a neat idea, plus you can incorporate more than one lesson into it by using apples as the stamps! Talk about the different types of apples, how the seeds from the apple if planted can make new trees, etc.

Paper Mosaic Pumpkin

What you will need:

  • Black, Orange, Brown Construction paper
  • Glue
  • Pumpkin outline on paper

This craft will help your child build muscles in their fingers and hands by ripping the construction paper. Let them take control of how they design the pumpkin! Let the creative juices flow!


I hope you enjoy these crafts with your family! Remember that even if they don’t turn out perfectly you have spent precious time bonding with your kids and that is the most important part.  We would love to see your crafts through social media, please tag us on IG @jonestherapyservices!
