Yarn Fall Leaves
Yarn Fall Leaves

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! 🙂

After drawing and cutting our newspaper animals, we filled them with newspaper, stapled the edges and then colored them with watercolor. They turned into super cute sea creatures.

So great to create your own games from recyclable materials, isn’t it? This time we added seashell handles just to give the puzzle a cooler appearance.

MB loves spending time in the kitchen. He prepares pasta, muffins and smoothie himself. When I ask his dream job, he directly says “Cook”. And he wants to be a cook, because he wants to cook for all homeless kids. This answer is melting my heart. This activity is great for boosting self-confidence, too. We named the place “MB’s Food Corner”, we were customers and MB was the chef. We ordered and he cooked, served for us. When you look into the setup, I am sure that you will see many skills in it, even more than I wrote below.

Buttons are great for creating DIY gifts, cards, frames, decorations and more. We made these as a wall hanging but you can write a cute not back side of it and send a friend as a birthday card.

You can have fun while strengthening hand muscles with clothespins and matching patterns. For older kids you can add more patterns. You can use markers if you don’t have washi tapes.

Paper Roll Beads

Small beads are very dangerous for under 2 year old kids, but these paper roll beads are not. If you want to prepare a fine motor activity for your 2 years old, this is great idea then. It is not only stringing but also sorting activity. Just cut the paper rolls into 3 pieces and use washi tapes to diversify them.
