Fun Fall Kids Crafts that are Simple & Fun

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: Screen Shot 2019-10-04 at 10.25.27 PM

You will need the following materials to complete this project:

-Clothes pin

-Cotton ball

-Paint brushes

-Paint Pallette (or I use a paper plate)

-Acrylic paint

-White paper

-Printable branch template (optional) or you can draw that part on yourself.

If this is a craft you’d like to try, click here to check out the entire blog post on it.

Marbled Fall Leaves with Shaving Cream

Another craft that stood out to me were these beautiful marbled fall leaves. Screen Shot 2019-10-04 at 10.39.47 PM

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)

-Acrylic paint

-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!Screen Shot 2019-10-04 at 10.48.23 PM.png

All you will need are the following:

-Pumpkins

-Paint

-Paint brushes

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!

Oh how I love fall, I am trying to soak up the season in every way!

Until next time,

I guess naturally it’s hard to explain a scent but I will tell you the 3-wick has been over $20 and it’s currently $14.50!

Go snag this wonderful scent today by clicking here.

I recommend a book, blanket, my hot cocoa recipe, and this candle for a wonderful fall night of relaxation!

Pick #13

Facebook Support Groups

fbook

So why are Facebook support groups one of my favorite things? Because it is just that…support!  We all have our ups and downs in life, and through them all we need support. But when we are struggling we when need A LOT of support right?

It’s interesting because I came across the facebook support groups last year (2018) when my son was diagnosed with a condition called PFAPA (Periodic Fever Syndrome). Basically, my little 2 year old boy was getting high fevers (always 105 degrees) every single month. These fevers were like clockwork where they would come every 4 weeks on the dot. My little boy went through a lot of testing, blood-work, screening…and it was gut-wrenching for me and my husband to watch. Once we finally got my son diagnosed by a rheumatology specialist, I had a friend suggest a support group on facebook for parents that also had children suffering from PFAPA.  So– I joined the online support group. It was very simple, I typed in PFAPA support group, there were different groups that came up that I could choose from, I had to answer a few questions —and then I was part of the group.

After I joined the PFAPA support group, it was such a relief to meet other parents who were dealing with their children going through the same symptoms as my little boy. Our support group was and is constantly encouraging each other, providing tips that may help with symptoms, and offering advice and uplifting encouragement. Overall, it was just nice for me to know that we weren’t alone in dealing with our sons condition. Since my sons condition is quite rare, I hadn’t met anyone personally who was dealing with the same issues until the facebook support group.

After joining a facebook support group for my sons health condition, I started researching and found that facebook has many support groups. The groups range from all types of health issues, skin problems, divorce, addiction, infertility… and the list goes on.

Facebook support groups may not be for everyone. Some people like to keep their issues more private and may prefer a different route since you are making your issue public.  But, for those who are feeling like they need extra resources to reach out to for support—I highly suggest looking to facebook for this. And the best part..it’s free!  It’s kind of like a free therapy session online:)

Having some encouragement and support at your fingertips can be a blessing when you don’t have anywhere else to turn.

Hopefully this post can resonate with someone, or help somebody find the encouragement and love they need. Support groups don’t shame people in anyway, they are there to lift people up and strengthen them. 

Good luck and keep pushing through!
