5 DIY Fall Craft Projects for Kids
Fall is almost here, that means you can easily find orange and mustard leaves in your backyard or at the front gate. Grab some of those leaves and let your kid make a crown for herself/himself and for you! All you need is a twine and some leaves, that’s it! You can paste those leaves on the twine with the help of a glue and make your kids crowns of their own.
If you are using large leaves, like those of an oak tree, then you can take seven to eight leaves. All you have to do is remove the stem so that you can easily paste the leaves. Now you can either paste them on the stem or sew it. We prefer pasting them as this way it will be easier for the kids to make leaf crowns for themselves!
The kids can easily make fall trees by using a couple of things like cardboard, tissues, paper plate, glue, and some paints. First of all, dab some paint on the tissues. Use orange, yellow and brown as you will be making fall trees. Let it dry, meanwhile cut the cardboard in the shape of the trunk of the tree. Cut the tissues in square shape and paste the pieces on the paper plate. Paste the truck under the paper plate and voila! Fall trees are ready in less than 30 minutes.
All you need to make leaf bookmarks are sticks, markers, scissors, and cardboard. Draw a maple leaf on the cardboard and cut it out. Take a stick and paste the cut-out part on the top of the stick. Use the marker to draw an outline to the leaf to give it more definition.
For this all you need is some paint, marker, thread, and paper plates. Dap some paint here and there on the paper plate, and let your kid do his/her creativity. Make a hole and hang the paper plates inside the window. Then enjoy your DIY suncatchers.
This DIY fall craft project is all about creativity. Take a clear vase, put sticks, barns, stones, and grass in it. Let your kid use his or her creativity to make a fall forest of their own!
These few DIY fall craft projects will surely keep the kids engaged and you, the parents, can have your fun with them too!
