Did you know that all rainbow colors are available in nature during fall season?? Here is the proof of it. Look at this beautiful rainbow made with leaves.
Are you ready to count? My 3 yo boy has been practicing numbers recently. Now it is 1-2-3 time for us. Let’s find something in nature to practice counting then. Sticks, leaves, cones and whatever you find is great to give a start. 1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣
Sometimes seeing your family in a very cute format makes you feel cheerful. At the beginning we created very small family with mum, dad and a baby, but then my second boy offered me to add our baby and his big brother. I hadn’t realized until that moment that he created his own family. So it turned out our weekend fun to craft our family who was enjoying hammock in a forest on a rainy day. 😊
I have many reasons to love autumn. Nature prepares us for winter with its warm colors. I think my favorite is to make autumn crafts, because it is very easy to find materials in nature during fall season.
Acorns are great for making DIY decorations. This time we used nail polishes to color them.
After dressing up the acorns with fabrics, we decided to use yarns to wrap some acorns, too. They turned out so beautiful and as everyone said they really looked like colorful lights. Using a piece of branch we turned them into a nice DIY decoration.
I should admit that this is the most difficult fall craft we have ever done 🙈🙈🙈
Not as easy as it seems. But the final products are incredibly beautiful. After preparing a leaf template with yarn, fill inside the lines with yarns. Just be patient! 🙂
Some activities are really like a therapy. While creating, your mind is getting relax. Leaf doodling is really too much fun. You can use metallic paint markers to doodle and if you want them to look shiny, you can use nail polishes as we did. They turned out very cute bookmarks.
I feel very happy when my kids come to me with an idea. One day when I went to pick up my son from kindergarten, I saw an acorn in his hand and asked to him about his plan with this acorn and he said to me that he was planning to glue googly eyes on it and then be friend with it.
As craft lovers, autumn is our favourite season, because it is the hit time to find many different colors and resources in the nature. Luckily in Finland there are hundreds of forests and one of them is just a few steps away from our home. Acorns are great for crafting and creating DIY ornaments.
