The official first day of fall is September 22nd. Have you noticed a change in the weather? Leaves start changing color and start falling. Crisp breezes have you pulling out your cozy sweater. To celebrate the changing of the seasons, we wanted to share some of our favorite arts and crafts projects to do with your kids.
When we think of fall, we think autumn leaves and pumpkins! Kaplan Early Learning Company shared a DIY Pumpkin Yarn Garland and Autumn Leaf Animal Collages. These collages can be completed with items found right in your backyard!
Another great place to find some of these items is at a Baltimore City Park. Baltimore National Heritage Area shared “Baltimore’s parks offer city residents and visitors a wealth of recreational, historic, and cultural opportunities. Many city parks have playgrounds and sports courts, and some feature public pools. Whether the goal is a quiet picnic, Frisbee throwing, or a simple walk, Baltimore parks are a fun and free experience.” Taking the kids for a stroll around a park is another great way to celebrate the changing of seasons.
Or check out these creative Handprint Fall Tree Craft, a Paper Bag Fall Wreath, a Leaf Window Hanging, and more from CBC Parents! We love how simple yet, cute these projects are.
Happiness is Homemade offers 30 more arts and crafts projects to suit your child’s personality. We love the cute Paper Pinwheel Scarecrow Kids Craft, Paper Plate Sunflowers, and Handprint Acorns. Check out more of their awesome ideas here!
Of course, we still love the activities that go along with fall: pumpkin painting, pumpkin carving, apple picking, corn mazes, playing in the leaves, but we wanted to share a few things that children could make to welcome the new fall season. Happy crafting!
