Something that has been fun already is driving around with our kids at night and finding fun decorated houses. There are quite a few homes in our neighborhood that have orange light ups, or blow-up spiders for Halloween.
Kids love the enjoyment of different holidays and seasons. The crafts that I have found for this post should be fun and simple to do with your kids for fall. Hopefully one idea will spark some fun family time together!
Autumn Tree Painting with Cotton Balls:
If you follow the blog “Projects with kids,” you will find some great seasonal crafts and activities. This autumn tree painting looks fun, and most homes should have many of the supplies already. I know my kids love anything with paints, yes it can get messy but if they are wearing old shirts or good cover-ups, the clean up isn’t bad.
Here is how the cotton-ball painting looks:
You will need the following materials to complete this project:
-Paint Pallette (or I use a paper plate)
-Printable branch template (optional) or you can draw that part on yourself.

Marbled Fall Leaves with Shaving Cream
Another craft that stood out to me were these beautiful marbled fall leaves.
My children LOVE to play with shaving cream in the bathtub so this should be a plus for us.
What’s even better is the main things you will need are:
-Shaving cream (I would say at least 2-3 bottles to be safe)
-A 9×13 casserole size pan
-Something to stir it with
-Paper leaf template
Each leaf with come out looking different and beautiful. If you are interested in this craft check out this blog Teaching with TLC
Have your child paint their own mini pumpkins
You know how cute those little pumpkins are that you see at the store, and they aren’t very expensive to buy. Well here’s an idea, buy enough for the entire family to have a pumpkin painting night!
All you will need are the following:
So simple and so fun because there are few guidelines. Kids love any opportunity to be creative and independent and this craft fulfills both!
Hopefully you create some memories with the family by doing a fun fall craft.
Please share any of you favorite fall crafts I would love to hear more ideas.
I’ll be back next week with a new post…thanks for following my 5 days of Fall!
