Creating DIY decorations is always too much fun. Cut a circle from cardboard and make holes around this circle. Cut long strips of fabric and thread them through the holes and knot them.
It helps to develop tiny hand muscles and imagination. You can build your own building. All you need is an empty box and some straws. That’s all. 🏦🏨🏡🏢🏠Cut the straws to the size you want, make small cuts in the middle, then insert the cardboards in the straws. It would be better if you use thin cardboard.
Foam is a great material for sewing practice. You can draw whatever you want and then make holes on foam to make it easier for kids to sew. It is too much fun. I use packing needle for pre-holes.
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.
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.
Handmade gifts are very special, aren’t they? The best part I love is fostering creativity while crafting with the kids. They choose the colors, patterns for their own crafts. I should admit that I also enjoy crafting a lot, especially when the final product becomes a beautiful decoration in our home.
Some activities are suitable for both little and big kids. If you prepare this activity as line tracing, so it will be suitable for 2 year olds. If you add patterns to it, so your 6 years old probably will love this idea a lot. Briefly, it was a great sibling play for my kids.
At home I drew this branches randomly and we went for a walk in the forest to be able to find our aim branches. Of course we couldn’t find exactly the same ones but tried to find very similar ones at least. This is the result. My boys were so excited and they had great time in the nature.
Now we have a branch collection hanging on our door and open to the public.
Another fall craft idea. It was too much fun for my sons to spray water to color paper leaves. MB loved especially the red crepe paper a lot, because it is really like bleeding. Besides process art, it was a very nice sensory play. With these colored leaves you can make your own garland.
