Artsy Craftsy Mom
When it comes to craft ideas for kids, fall is the best inspiration. For starters, craft supplies literally fall from the trees. (And as a bonus: you can spend family time outside whenever you need supplies.) If you don’t want to make plans with fall leaves, you can also use pine cones and tassels like white canvases. Inspiration for the subject abounds – you can do projects that use the colors of fall leaves, or feature apples, pumpkins and other fall treats.
These easy fall crafts for kids make the best use of all the stuff they probably pick up and stuff in their pockets anyway. (Which elementary school student doesn’t have a bunch of hidden acorns somewhere in their bedroom?) You just need to give your little creator a boost in the right direction and give him ideas on what to do with them all. From the wooded scenes to the masterpieces inspired by the harvest, you will be amazed at what they can offer. Start picking up those pine cones now!

Bubble painted apple
To give these apple crafts a different texture, try painting bubble wrap and using it as a stamper. Tip: it is easier to use if you wrap the bubble wrap around a cardboard tube.

Strawberry tassel magnets
You can do this job in the fall and remember the hot sunny summer days. Then you can use them all year round – they are magnets! Note: This requires a hot glue gun, so it is best for tweens / teens where you can step in and supervise.
